A Remarkable Bridge In Virginia, The James River Bridge Is A Historic Work Of Art

Bridges are a captivating topic here in Virginia. Equal parts beautiful and functional, they provide a sense of place while also offering a very practical way of getting from here to there. From covered bridges scattered throughout the state to the famous Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, the Old Dominion is home to some truly remarkable crossings. And that brings us to today’s feature, the historic James River Bridge.

Here’s the history behind one of Virginia’s most beautiful bridges.
