As a lifelong resident of Dartmouth, I felt compelled to capture a few photos of our beloved Padanaram Bridge on her last day before closing for the next several months. Saturday morning my husband and I went for an early morning walk in order to catch a quiet glimpse of the Bridge’s all so common sights. Many of us have taken for granted the daily use the Bridge provides us, not realizing its convenience until several weeks ago when it closed, though only for a short while. From sunrise fishing, to moonlight walks, and long summer bike rides, the causeway is well deserving of the facelift it’ll be given, despite any minor inconvenience it may cause us. A monument across the harbor, and a piece of Dartmouth’s history, this is only the next step in the Bridge’s story; preserving her use for the future, as has been done for the last century and a half, since the first bridge stood.
