Bridges

The 2 Bridges that moves motorist and pedestrians from Main land Monrovia to Bushrod Island are:

  • The Mesurado Bridge also known as the Old Bridge or Via Town Bridge.  This bridge crosses the Mesurado River into Via town, Bushrod Island.
  • The second bridge, the Gabriel Johnson Tucker Bridge is the newest of the 2 bridge and it also crosses the Mesurado River and connects Main Land Monrovia to Via Town/ Bushrod Island . The bridge was completed in 1979 under the Tolbert Administration.   It is also known as the Johnson Street Bridge or the New Bridge. 

The Johnson Street bridge is the only access to the historical Providence Island.  Before the bridge was built the ferry was the only way to the island.  Two sets of spiraling stairways descend on both side of the Bridge to Providence island
