Notes
  • Often mistakenly called a "chain" bridge, this is a "change" bridge. Dale Oswald explains (in the context of the Aldrich Change Bridge at Palmyra, NY), "A change bridge is one with low railings and an underpass that allowed draft teams to move from one side of the canal to the other without unhitching, cloverleaf-style."
