The 17 m wide bridge was used mostly by pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists until nearby bridge repairs and tunneling operations caused more vehicular traffic to drive onto the bridge.
So much of Shanghai has been rebuilt in the last few years, that when I used a guidebook to look around the Old City, I found most of it was gone. Hopefully, the graceful Zhapu Bridge isn't also scheduled for demolition.
