Bascule Bridge


(1918-1978) The Bascule Bridge connected Webster Street in NT to Main Street in Tonawanda. A crucial feature of the bridge in the days of heavier canal commerce was that it could open to allow taller boats to pass. According to a plaque on the site, it was built by the Bethlehem Steel Bridge Corporation. This collection features photos of the bridge in its heyday, as well as a black-and-white series vividly depicting its 1978 demolition, and the rerouting of the Main and Young street approaches.
