Eckman Road Bridge (Pennsylvania)

Surprised nobody has commented about this bridge. The bridge shows evidence of widespread alteration, since there are a massive number of empty river holes on the portal and sway bracing. My first guess would be that the bridge was narrowed... which also makes one wonder if the bridge was relocated and reused at this location. It would be interesting to know. Finally, taking into consideration the alterations, what I can see of the bridge leads me to believe that this bridge may be the work of famous engineer George Morison. The large lattice portal and sway bracing, Whipple truss configuration, and the arrangement and composition of some of the truss members are what suggests this possibility.

Art,

The Historic Bridge Foundation is another out-of-state entity that frequently is a consulting party on bridge projects in Pennsylvania. I have trouble keeping track of them all, but it looks like HBF isn't a CP on this one.

Convincing PennDOT, Cumberland County, or any entity in Pennsylvania that rehab of historic truss bridges is even occasionally feasible has been an uphill battle of over a decade. Progress has been made, but not enough to turn a report like this one around 180 degrees.

I figured that you were the out of state preservationist they were referring to.

I was hoping that you might be able to convince them that repair/restoration would be a faster/better alternative.

we visited this bridge last summer. it is closed to traffic. we walked out onto the deck and found huge holes across the span... I saw no sign of rehabilitation or construction. It's a beautiful spot, with lots of birds - a nice oasis in an otherwise sparse area.

Posted February 18, 2015, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

Very little (and some apparently incorrect) information on this bridge both here on Bridgehunter as well as on other contemporary internet sources like Wikipedia, and someone even voted this bridge with very few stars here on BH. As such, I am happy to present, hot off the press in the current update stream, the HistoricBridges.org research results for this bridge http://www.historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowse... which revealed detailed articles about the construction of this bridge in period engineering literature. Innovative methods were used to construct this bridge without disruption of railroad traffic, while also altering and reusing the original stone piers with unique "pier girders." Literature also provided an apparent explanation for four panels of pin-connected eyebar in the bottom chord of an otherwise rivet-connected truss which was to enable "closing" of the bridge as the ends of the span were erected outward via cantilever method to meet in the middle. Finally, my research indicates that the 1904 reference is an error. I could not find that any significant event happened with this bridge in 1904. The bridge seen today was completed in 1913, using portions of the previous bridge's stone piers.

Posted February 18, 2015, by Julie Bowers (jbowerz1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

From my conversations regarding this bridge I have found out that the county doesn't want the expense of putting in and electrifying a stop light system for the one lane bridge. It really has no access to bypass the historic given it's location and we know from our work in Pennsylvania that the bottom chord will most likely be shot. Workin' Bridges has not looked at this one professionally.

And now, in Pennsylvania, bridges are not necessarily doomed, but they must go through the Section 106 process before the next step can be made. For Pennsylvania that most likely means the "Bridges for Sale" program that Workin' Bridges is involved with through Preservation PA.

There is an alternate route, this bridge could be repaired most likely (they almost all can) but the costs do vary. If you are interested in more info look into ProjectPath. They are trying and there are many view points to be considered.

Anyone who is interested in FACTS about this project rather than DRAMA as presented by the county may feel free to review the Section 106 documentation to date here posted as public record: http://search.paprojectpath.org/PostingDetails.aspx?ProjectI...

and from the documentation it will become readily apparent that any delays are neither the fault of the PHMC or the consulting parties, and instead is the result of unanswered questions, discrepancies, and incomplete analysis in the feasibility report as prepared by the hired consultant at the direction of... drumroll... the county. Should the county wish to speed up the process, there are several options available to it. In the future, the county could hire a consultant with a deeper experience in considering the feasibility of truss bridge rehabilitation. If an analysis had led to a feasible and prudent alternative that would preserve the historic bridge, the project could already be "shovel ready" with a project to preserve the historic bridge and meet the needs of the crossing. The county also has, at any time, the option to reject the 80% federal funds and use exclusively local funds to replace the bridge (as long as no federal permits are required). Alternatively, the county could have just repaired the bridge to get it open again.

There is a lot going on here bridgewise. (Okay, I don't think that bridgewise is a word, but I digress). Two railroads cross the Bluestone River in this vicinity. This small road crosses the Bluestone River directly under the highest railroad bridge. It then passes under the lower railroad before the lower railroad crosses the Bluestone River. Is everybody confused yet?

To make matters even worse, the NBI had this bridge located off the west coast of Panama.

Posted February 17, 2015, by Patrick Feller (nakrnsm [at] aol [dot] com)

Yes, the Bayou Lacassine Highway 14 bridge was being replaced about the same time as this page was created.

The NBI listing is a bit behind.

The NBI listing does at least show the Bayou Lacassine bridge in it proper location, Jefferson Davis Parish, as does this listing for the old bridge:

http://bridgehunter.com/la/jefferson-davis/72701960302581/

which also predates this "Lacassine Bayou" bridge page by a few years.

Dave,

I think the postcard you added is actually for a different bridge around the corner. Strange that a postcard would feature a stringer, but count the railing balusters and note the flat deck (no hump) and is thus seems to match the stringer. http://www.historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowse...

Re: A little help please
Posted February 16, 2015, by Matt Lohry

Royce,

While I agree that the NBI can be a bit unreliable at times, I believe that it only lists bridges that either roads cross or that cross over roads. The rail bridge you are referring to most likely crossed over a public road. Rail bridges that cross over anything other than roads are not typically listed. As for how to list the bridges in your pic, that's a good question...I guess I'd list them individually, since they are separate bridges, even if they're right next to each other and carry separate rails of the same line over the same feature. As always, differing opinions are welcome.

Posted February 16, 2015, by Zachary S

Hmm. Well the linked article on metal theft is rather infuriating... major problem for metal bridges in the central part of the state. People have no respect for heritage.

I drove this road to work in the early '70s and have only a sketchy memory of this bridge although I clearly recall a polygonal pony over the Little Blue just west of (old) Raytown Road and it seems likely this was the same type.

Jackson County built a number of polygonal pony trusses on the county highways during their development circa 1930. There was one each over the Little Blue on Colbern and Noland roads near their intersection, one over the Blue River on Bannister and a few others on Outer Belt to the south.

At some point they should be documented as a group. I'm waiting until I find a picture of one. I believe the last to be taken out of use was the one on Colbern, replaced around the same time as the one on Noland, in the '90s.

Posted February 15, 2015, by Clark Vance (cvance [at] dogmail [dot] com)

Longview lake was filled around 1986. I drove this bridge a few times in the years before that and recall it as being similar to the Colbern road bridge over the MoPac tracks east of Unity Village. I remember it as 18 foot "Pendergast Era" pavement, true (turned post) concrete balustrade railing, with concrete flower pots on the posts. I recall someone joking that Lula Long's gardeners maintained the flowers. Since this was the main paved access road to Longview Farm, that may have been true. The bridge was perhaps the most ornate of those on the county highway system of the time.

I'm sure multiple pictures exist but I have yet to find any.

Another lost bridge that I had forgotten about. I found it on the Lee's Summit Quadrangle map, and then started to remember it. From what my father and I recall it was a Pony Truss, and a nearby bridge was also built in 1928, so that is the date that I used. It is unknown if it is inundated or was removed, but it would be under deep water.

The Comer Bridge Foundation has some decisions to make regarding moving forward with this bridge. Input from other preservationists was sought, other successful projects were researched. It seemed that we were going to be able to form a legal authority with Scottsboro and Jackson County for a Tourism Development Authority, with the bridge as one of the big revenue projects. That was denied. And, now, a large investment is needed to pursue the match funding for the Economic Impact Study grant application NSRGA/CBF applied at the NTHP. We are using a certified consultant from Troy University. The City, however, decided that they were better off making a decision regarding forming an authority now, rather than waiting for more information that they asked for in previous meetings regarding the liability of the city/county if an authority is formed separately by statute. The citizens were told that they would have to raise millions to demolish this bridge when it falls down and that risk is just unacceptable, notwithstanding that the plan advocated using a portion of the demo funds for an investment strategy that would pay off handsomely over time and do more than just pay for demolishing the bridge. All the experts in the world can't match loud voicers misstating facts.

More will be revealed. Most of the bridge hunters on here aren't engaged in active restorations, nor the politics that almost always play out. It's one of those hidden things that plays out in very insidious ways like moving the goal line when you get too close.

There are options, but those options require a fair amount of money, with no promise that there is a win at the end of the process. That is what developers do, spend money like a crap shoot, but we can't afford to do that. I can say that our team did more than due diligence to help with plans for restoration but we can't insist that CBF continues this struggle, what we do now know is that ALDOT will not give HRI permission to change traffic lanes to begin taking the old bridge out before the new bridge is done. Time is once again on our side.

We have gotten through to a few engineers at the state level that they ask for some level of expertise when working with these bridges. In Texas, it was a 5 year level and asking for hot riveting. They ended up bowing to pressure and have since taken off the riveting ostensibly to see what the testing and inspection plans for field riveting would be.

I say, the inspection should be an app. A sounding tool, if you will that would give a readout and back up to the inspection. Old fashioned in some ways, it is really just like sounding concrete. I've asked Nels to produce some bad rivets. It's not that easy he says. So we go on to other projects with other DOTs hoping that some standards might come out of the policy makers at some point.

Nice article that discusses historic bridge preservation in general and this bridge specifically and it quotes Nathan extensively - congrats Nathan!

The Big Four was lit up last night. Looked amazing. I think waterfront park hit this out of the park.

Now gone as per Google Earth. New concrete bridge built on slightly different alignment.

This, I'd say, is a pretty epic and amusing addition.

Definitely looks like it to me. I can make out pins and eyebars in the street view.

This tunnel was NEVER a PRR/CR/OHCR tunnel. It was a Wabash/P&WV/N&W/now-W&LE tunnel which is located just to the SE of the new Mark West Energy Hopedale Fractionator/Rail Yard complex along and serviced by the Wheeling and Lake Erie Railroad.

The tunnel I can most closely picture as being confused with this one would be bypassed tunnel #6 along the PRR/CR/OHCR Panhandle Line between Reed's Mill and Fernwood.

What was the length of Spellacy tunnel?
