Palm Beach’s old Flagler Memorial Bridge was constructed by the federal Works Progress Administration (WPA). The bridge was completed in 1938; however, in 2014 the bridge was undergoing replacement and demolition.
WPB.org: “WPA funds were also utilized to construct the Flagler Memorial Bridge which opened in 1938, replacing the earlier railroad bridge from West Palm Beach to Palm Beach.”
