I believe that the bridge was originally built by the Pittsburgh, McKeesport and Youghiogheny (P-Mickey) Railroad. Predecessor to the P&LE up the Youghiogheny. The other side of the river was initially the Pittsburgh and Connellsville, which became part of the B&O.

Wrong bridge, wrong road, wrong location.

Location was near RT40 and RT53 junction in upper LaVale, 6 mile house referred to on postcard is distance from Cumberland.

Eliminated due to road widening c.1950, widened again in 1970s.

I like all of the info you have put together on this structure. I grew up one block south of this overpass and lived through the Wabash/Norfolk and Western/Norfolk Southern transitions. I believe the existing bridge was constructed long before the Wabash/N&W transition occurred. Please let me know if I am incorrect.

Thanks, John

Probably only preserved due to its connection to one of the most infamous bridge events in USA history. Overall there has been absolutely zero improvement to preservation in West Virginia. I can think of maybe one state standard truss that was programmed for rehab and thats about it.

This is the view just to the left of the old bridge site. Between this picture and the fact I discovered the directional etchings visible in the roadway in front of the bridge in your picture are still there, I think we can safely confirm that your mystery bridge was indeed this one.

A visit to this bridge was very interesting. The quality of the rehab is superb, despite some rivets that were replaced by bolts. Signs present the history of the bridge with photos, the reason it was taken down, and this approach span which was saved and has now been rehabilitated.

Because of the reality of the situation here, there are many contradictory categories listed. For instance, it is both "Lost" and "Open", which is correct. It is unsure whether the listed dimensions apply to the whole old bridge, or the remaining approach span plus ramp, or neither one.

I've lived here with my family of five since the 90's. The bridge is not only historic but a source of access to the rails to trails. Not only is the design Beautiful it is a piece of art from the early building of this area of Idaho. This bridge is so visually inspiring from so many angles in so many seasons with so much wildlife. This bridge needs to be saved for future generations to use,enjoy and pass on to our new generations of North Idaho lovers. Please keep this piece of Idaho history intact for the future.

Posted November 27, 2022, by Brandon Cooper

I would have kept it separate if there was a patch of land between the two, as that could and almost would constitute two separate bridges.

Posted November 27, 2022, by Dave King (DKinghawkfan [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Should be merged or deleted since it’s the approach.

Photo #3 is of a different bridge I think, which appears to be a deck truss, not a through truss.

I’ve been continuing my research on this bridge. My great grandfather ran the Hana Crosby Ferry that was replaced by the low water bridge that this bridge replaced in 1964. I don’t know exactly where the low water bridge was located or the ferry and the house my grandfather lived in were relative the current bridge. I’m still hunting that information.

In the course of my research, I did discover lots of history of the parish along with locations of the landings used on Bayou Macon back when steamboats came as far as Waverly to bring supplies and pick up cotton bound for New Orleans.

Posted November 25, 2022, by Sherman Cahal (shermancahal [at] outlook [dot] com)

Also, it appears that between the bridge's construction in 1898 and modern times, the bridge was widened.

Posted November 25, 2022, by Sherman Cahal (shermancahal [at] outlook [dot] com)

I added new photos of the bridge from earlier this month. The sidewalk is now bowing downward/outward in places, indicating a complete structural failure. At this time, only the primary girders are in satisfactory condition; the appendages supporting the roadway deck and sidewalk are completely corroded. The stone piers are also in poor condition, with numerous stones missing.

Philadelphia - Wilmington? Area bridge Unknown

Hello - I recently bought this watercolor dated 1937 by Philadelphia artist Edith Bonney Franklin. It depicts a bridge that appears to be 1920’s or 30’s. Does anyone recognize this bridge and know of its location? Does it still exist?

There could possibly be a stadium in the background over the bridge and just to the left where there appear to be field lights in the distance.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

Posted November 23, 2022, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I visited this one on 11/6/22. Unfortunately, the deck is in extremely poor condition. The railroad grade is supposedly a trail, but much of the approach is in extremely poor condition and is not safe to walk over. If this bridge was converted to a proper trail, the long approach on the west would likely need to be completely re-decked, if not entirely replaced. Fortunately, the truss appears to be in good condition.

Posted November 23, 2022, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

There is a plaque clearly visible from the west bank on one of the trusses..these trusses are rather heavy for 1906 spans. Glad to have visited this one

Anybody willing to take a stab at trying to read this? For some reason the builders decided to place the contractor's plaque at the top of the abutment where it's impossible to see. All I can read is that the top line is the engineer and the second is the contractor

Posted November 22, 2022, by Tony Stelter (milw157 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

If this bridge is for the old line as the photo indicates, this would be from the old northern line that crossed the canal north of the current CP railroad bridge. The northern line was rerouted to connect to the main line to the south of the current bridge; this photo also notes removal and not replacement. The angle that the sun is shining on the bridge would indicate that it is in more of a east-west orientation vs the current north-south main line bridge. The old northern line bridge would have been located north of the current Hwy 33 crossing; a bridge for Harold LeJeune Snomobile Park is almost exactly where the old bridge was located. Using aerial maps you can see where the old railroad ROW was located and where the bridge was located.

Posted November 22, 2022, by Erica Parriott (parriott [dot] erica [at] gmail [dot] com)

The old bridge was relocated to the middle of Helicopter Park in Chickamauga, GA. Pictures are from December 9, 2020.

Posted November 22, 2022, by Erica Parriott (parriott [dot] erica [at] gmail [dot] com)

The overview lists this as "Bridge over Georgetown Branch Trail ex-B&O RR on MacArthur Boulevard". This is incorrect, and should be changed to something like "Tunnel under MacArthur Boulevard and the Washington Aqueduct on abandoned Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (BO), now the Capital Crescent Trail".

Can anybody help me to save our bridge?
Posted November 21, 2022, by L Samuel (samfamjam [at] gmail [dot] com)

Hello,

On our property, my husband and I have what was once a beautiful creek, complete with a charming, red iron bridge.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of effective city planning, our neighborhood has been experiencing much flooding after heavy rains and the quaintness of the creek has been ruined. One storm this past September caused such force of water coming through our property that it actually picked up and moved our over-a-thousand-pound bridge. It is now IN the creek instead of "bridging" it.

As it is now blocking the movement of water, the city is mandating that we remove it and has offered to do it "for us" but they would be destroying it and scrapping it. The city's plans to (eventually) widen the creek to resolve the flooding issues would create a creek too wide for our bridge to cross so we are unable to keep it. We would hate to see this bridge destroyed.

Anyone know of someone willing to buy a bridge like this? Any ideas of other ways to preserve it?

We are appreciative of any help that you can offer. Thank you so much.

My father, Dr. Conrad P. Heins, Jr., was a civil engineer active during the 1970s and early 1980s. Among his photos is a series of pictures from what I think is the Choptank River Drawbridge at the time of its collapse. If anyone can confirm this from the attached photos, I'd be grateful! Note that the date the film was developed is Sep. 1976, not 1980 as the entry for this bridge indicates, so I may be wrong.

On several old maps of whitfield county dating back to the 1870s, as well as in the farthest right middle side of a civil war era map of army routes on the mountains west of dalton, in the same places where ‘looper bridge’, ‘looper bend’ and an abandoned section of Collins rd se which is located on the other side of drowning bear creek, there are numerous labels referring to ‘Holland’, and a label in one of the 1800s maps located in the exact place that looper bridge is currently, reads: “Holland’s bridge”. In the area of the abandoned section of Collins road, on city owned land I believe, old maps showed several homesites and the 1860s map showed that many ‘Hollands’ lived there, with a nearby label(s) reading “Holland Chapel”. A mill named ‘Bear creek mill’ apparently existed on part of drowning bear creek just upstream of where Collins road se had once crossed, or crosses currently, the creek. I’d also love to know about the road that ran from downtown dalton all the way to the conasauga river and crossed the river there in a place called “Vickery ford”.

The location under the bridge was the filming location of the Czechoslovakian border crossing/checkpoint scenes in the movie Stripes. The location is open to the public for the Tioga Falls trailhead parking. The path that begins under the bridge is paved, easy to walk, and dead ends at a gate/Fort Knox. The other out-and-back trail that starts west of the parking lot is far more rugged, ascends up the ridge, crosses the train tracks, and ends in a waterfall.

I finally visited this bridge on 11/13/2022. The bridge is on and surrounded by DNR land. It was easy to access from a parking lot at 870 Road and the old railroad grade. The bottom of the bridge would be easy to access from a DNR parking lot to the southwest.

Unfortunately the east pier is beginning to fail and there is no clear future for this bridge.
