The Way it Was: A 1931 aerial view of the West Channel Bridge

This 1931 aerial view, looking east toward La Crosse from the Wisconsin-Minnesota border, shows the old West Channel Bridge, which was completed 85 years ago in December 1931.

This steel truss bridge served until the early 1990s, when it was replaced by the two concrete girder bridges which now span the West Channel.
