BEAUTIFUL BRIDGE: Now providing a lovely entrance-way into Ann Arbor from the north, the new Huron Valley Bride is in full use carrying traffic over the Huron River and the New York Central Railroad tracks. In this aerial view, looking almost due east, the new four-lane span dwarfs the old, narrow Whitemore Lake Rd. Bridge. Faintly visible at top center is the Northside School. (Photo by James Galbraith)
