Summer 6-1975


View of Bragga Bridge and Fall River over Mt. Hope Bay. The bridge eased traffic complications between Cape Cod and Providence for only a short time. The commute from Fall River to Providence is still time consuming in rush hour traffic. The bridge is under constant repair, and the new city hall built over 195 on the other side of the bridge is a constant threat and danger to travelers.
