BLUE BRIDGE 1924 - 2018
Designed by the Strauss Bascule Bridge Company, the Johnson Street Bridge took almost four years to complete and cost $918,000.
More than 100 tons of steel make up the frame of the bridge and the concrete counter- weights total 780 tons.
Every day the bridge carries more than 4000 pedestrians, 3000 cyclists, and 23,000 vehicles.
In 1979 the bridge was painted blue.
