This span would become known as the [[Court_Street|Court Street]] Bridge.\\ \\  Four bridges have been built on this site. The first bridge was a wooden, covered bridge, built by [[Henry_Coffeen|Henry Coffeen]], which stood until 1880, when a new iron bridge was erected in its place. Ruins of the stone foundations of the wooden, and iron bridges can still be seen next to the current bridge. In 1920, a two tiered, steel and concrete structure was built. The top level linked [[Court_Street|Court]],​ [[Coffeen_Street|Coffeen]] and Massey Streets, while the lower tier was accessible from Newell Street. This structure was demolished in 1987, and the current bridge was erected in its place. + + | [[http://​i702.photobucket.com/​albums/​ww22/​JeffCoWikiPhotos/​Jefferson_County/​Watertown/​CourtStBridge1987-1.jpg.jpg|{{http://​i702.photobucket.com/​albums/​ww22/​JeffCoWikiPhotos/​Jefferson_County/​Watertown/​CourtStBridge1987-1.jpg|Two tiered concrete bridge}}]] | + | Two tiered concrete bridge | + + | [[http://​i702.photobucket.com/​albums/​ww22/​JeffCoWikiPhotos/​Jefferson_County/​Watertown/​courtstbrdgruins-1.jpg|{{http://​i702.photobucket.com/​albums/​ww22/​JeffCoWikiPhotos/​Jefferson_County/​Watertown/​courtstbrdgruins-1.jpg|Ruins of 19th cent. foundations}}]] | + | Ruins of 19th cent. foundations | + \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ \\ + ===== See Also ===== + [[Bridges_in_Jefferson_County|Bridges in Jefferson County]]
