Two bridges are seen in the picture. On the left is the old MaCarther bridge built in 1920. On the right is the new Highway 34 bridge constructed in 1989 and completed 1992. The new bridges main spar is 320 feet high. The bridge cost $30 million in 1990. River clearance during a normal part of the year is 55 feet in the middle part. It took 1245 days to complete this project.
