We are researching the Congress Avenue Bridge. The Congress Avenue Bridge was made in 1869, and was destroyed two times by a flood. Then, it was destroyed again because too many people were walking on it at once. The bridge collapsed because there was too much weight on it. We go there to watch the bats every year.
