The original Lafayette Street (today Kennedy Boulevard) swing bridge opened on November 28, 1888. A designated pedestrian path is on both edges of the bridge. This civic improvement is one of Plant’s lasting legacies. The power plant that he built, identified by its 140-foot tall smokestack, provided electricity for the hotel.
