This aerial view shows East 23rd Street and the construction work on the 23rd Street bridge, center, between Barker and Haskell avenues. This view looks over 23rd Street and toward the northwest. The bridge is expected to be replaced by September. The $4.5 million project is necessary to replace a bridge that had been built in 1931, then widened to four lanes in 1970.

Has anybody explained why this bridge is necessary? The old bridge passed over railroad tracks that were removed years ago. It seems that a pedestrian bridge over 23rd Street would be cheaper than a bridge over the hiking trail.
