Serve Daily con­firms that the London Bridge is not fall­ing down. Von Isaman of Salem, Utah sights the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Ari­zona. It is the re­lo­cated 1831 bridge that for­merly spanned the River Thames in London, Eng­land un­til it was dis­man­tled in 1967. The Ari­zona bridge is a re­in­forced con­crete struc­ture clad in the orig­i­nal ma­sonry of the 1830s bridge, which was bought by Robert P. McCul­loch (chain­saw and oil fame) from the City of London. McCul­loch had ex­te­rior gran­ite blocks from the orig­i­nal bridge num­bered and trans­ported to Ari­zona to con­struct the present bridge in Lake Havasu City, a planned com­mu­nity he es­tab­lished in 1964 on the shore of Lake Havasu. The bridge was com­pleted in 1971 (along with a canal), and links an is­land in the Colorado River with the main part of Lake Havasu City. (Text por­tions cour­tesy of Wikipedia)
