Description

The intersection of College St and Memorial Blvd in Downtown Providence in 1979. Its neighbor bridge, the Crawford Street Bridge was narrowed around the same time of this ones' completion. The slimming of Crawford Street's pedestrian-focused bridge co-instituted this and it as vehicular traffic driven bridges.
