Boulevard Bridge

-A A +A
1928. 1995, renovation

The developers of Westover Hills built this narrow truss bridge to provide a direct automobile connection to the near west end of Richmond. Renovation of the bridge replaced the decking and railing and reduced the sidewalks from two to one. Even though the toll now is 25 cents, Richmonders still euphemistically refer to it as the Nickel Bridge.
