During the 1930s, the old Second Avenue Swing Bridge became inadequate and occasionally inoperative. On August 20, 1938, the Public Works Administration agreed to finance a new bridge. There was an outright grant of $157,909 to supplement $190,000, which the Municipal Church desired to raise though a bond issue. The special election resulted in approval of $192,500 bond issue for the new bridge. It opened in December 1939.
