                          August 24, 1945. This view was taken from the Winooski end of the bridge looking toward Colchester Ave. hill. Note the completed hot plant mix wearing surface on the right half of the bridge (asphalt spreader and roller shown in the distance) while two way traffic is suing the left half of the bridge. The crew in the left foreground is removing the old cold-patch aprons which were temporarily placed near the newly installed steel expansion lanes during the previous season. This wearing surface was placed 2 inches in thickness and tapered off on to the approaches at each end. The cost of this work was borne by the City of Winooski and City of Burlington sharing in the proportion of the grand list of each City and the State Highway Department. The State Highway Department paid for 4/5 of the total cost while the other fifth was divided between the two cities.
