Long Description:
A unique bridge lies just ahead. You're not seeing things--the Minetto Bridge does slant downwards towards the west bank. This is actually the fourth bridge to span the river in Minetto. The first was wooden and built somewhere in the early to mid-1800s. This bridge, recently rebuilt, has an unusual design, with two distinct sections. The east section spans the river with three concrete arches. The west one spans the New York State Canal. While here, note the stone abutments in the water. These were part of the second Minetto bridge, built in 1872.
