Bit of history agian.

As you may have seen in "To the Right of the End" and "Once A Road"; some of the roads in Milpitas have already in our 50 years as a city have become obsolete. This is almost one of them… I say almost because there is now a business complex here and a storage lot… But this bridge was one of a few that connected Main St to Jacklyn Rd prior to 1976. In ’76 the Jacklyn Bridge opened up and this road was closed… (a fun fact to place here… My brother was the first one to officially ride across the Jacklyn Bridge details below) Standing on this bridge looking north you can tell by the overhead lines that the road at onetime continued… Now it just ends at a court. Funny how things evolve and still remain the same… Brother Bridge Story. My brother wanted to make the papers so when the Jacklyn Bridge opened in 1976 he rode his bike, along with many other kids in Milpitas, over the bridge at ribbon cutting… However, he pulled ahead and he also had a flag on a pole on the back of his bike. So the reporter for the Milpitas Post Snapped his picture just as he took the lead… and the rest is history…
