Bridge Evolution

The evolution of the Parker River Bridge (Route 1A)
Newbury, Massachusetts

Bridges come, bridges go.
This one once carried cattle and trolleys, now it carries bicycles and autos.
It once had 7 piers, then 4, now 2.
Constructed of wood, and of stone, then of concrete, then steel,
and all made by muscle.
One lane, two lanes, three lanes, four lanes,
they open they close.
They let water flow one way, boats flow two.
