The current arch bridge was a replacement for a one lane suspension bridge. Or was it? Could the 650 foot (198 meter) high suspension bridge have simply been a temporary structure to get men and materials to the other side during construction? I hope to find out the answer soon.

The suspension span measured approximately 975 feet (297 mtrs) between the back walls of the deck abutments or 1,060 feet (323 mtrs) between the since removed center supports of the cable span. Image by Eric Sakowski / HighestBridges.com
