Completed in 1910, the Hawthorne is one of the world's oldest operating lift bridges. It is also raised more often than any other in town, because it is merely 53 feet above the water. The crossing also carries the most cycle and foot traffic. In 1998, the artery was closed for extensive restoration. Many repairs and improvements were made, including widening the sidewalks to accommodate the heavy usage.
