Racine Street Bridge Begins

Appleton Post-Crescent January 28, 1950

Taken from Water Street, this photo shows Menasha's new bridge beginning to take shape. On Saturday, August 25, 1951, the new Racine Street lift bridge was dedicated in memory of Curtis Reed, and the old Mill Street swing bridge was demolished shortly afterward. Built at a cost of $585,000, the modern structure featured automatic warning lights and power driven lifts.
