Mill Street, Bristol Bridge

Behind the Brick Building is the Mill Street Bridge. The canal went under the bridge. The bridge, built by the Pennsylvania Railroad, was once a part of the original Pennsylvania Railroad route through Bristol. The Pennsylvania later altered its route through Bristol to what is now route that the main line of Amtrak uses going through Bristol. After going under the Mill Street Bridge, the canal's water went in two directions. One direction took it straight toward Bristol Marsh. The other direction, the one the canal boats took,made a bend to come toward Lock One. 10/25/03
