Royce,thank you for identifying this bridge i posted about.Let me know if you want to see more and i will post them.Where i live in southeastern pa.there are alot of abandoned bridges and also bridges that are still in use that are not on this site.

This situation is a bit tricky. The original bridge was a swing bridge (no longer operable). The span between the north bank and the center pier collapsed under a train in 1963. The collapsed section was replaced by a set of short deck girder bridges while the remainder of the bridge between the center pier and the south bank was left in place. The surviving section was recently replaced by the existing truss bridge.

Thought these were pics of the Wasena Park Greenway Bridge. Turns out they were not. So I added and posted them anyways. Not a great bridge but maybe in 75 years...

Cool little bridge in Boyertown. It is a pony plate girder with a flooring system on the Pioneer Industrial Railway Company (PRY)tracks.

Yes that is the NS bridge. But, your river is incorrect. The bridge pictured is actually crossing the East Pearl River. Approx 8 miles west of this bridge is another River called the West Pearl River that has a larger railroad bridge crossing it.

I have found a railroad bridge located in Boyertown,Pa.on N.Reading Ave. between Rtes.73 and 100.This bridge which i think is a steel girder type is part of the Colebrookedale rail line which ran from Pottstown Pa.to supposedly Bally Pa.There is rail on it from what i see on satellite imagery and as far as i know it is still there.

I get it remember I told you that yes it doesn't always look the best all the time that is because some times I rush because of time when I'm handling bussiness especially when I'm on the internet researching drawbridges at the library when I get cut off. Now most of the time I take my time sketching them and I know that you can admit ArtS that some are the best sketches for example the Dyckman Avenue bridge in Michigan and the Lansing Island bridge sketch in Florida.

Posted February 1, 2016, by Joel Anderson (joelacust [at] gmail [dot] com)

I'm the recipient of the bridge. It will be put back into use in Osakis MN as a limited use river crossing. It is scheduled to be moved this spring (2016). Installation date is not yet scheduled.

I am looking for bids for installation. My email is joelio_007@hotmail.com. If you put "bridge" in the subject line it will get to me.

Posted February 1, 2016, by Thad Osborne (tgo1330 [at] comcast [dot] net)

I visited the site in early January 2016. The new bridge will probably be complete and open to traffic late this year. Charles Blalock & Sons of Sevierville, TN, is the contractor. Another great old landmark soon to go, so we can move house trailers more conveniently.

Douglas,

I welcome corrections of any factual errors I've made.

I had a bit of trouble understanding the rest of what you wrote. So I'll do my best in responding to it using my best interpretation.

My recent posts relating to your sketches were sincere, I genuinely broke out in laughter when I saw the number of sketches you had posted on the particular bridge being referred to. They dwarfed, in quantity, the actual pictures and were particularly funny in light of the prior exasperated post that made me look.

If your drawing sketches of drawbridges is your expression of your faith, that's wonderful for you. However, to share these sketches on this site, you need the webmaster's approval, which you apparently have, and you open yourself up to other member's opinions. These opinions in no way question your faith. They only question your judgement and your drawing skills. I have previously expressed my opinion of your drawing skills to you, so I will not revisit it here.

Sincerely,

Art S.

George, its not for me to say what you do here, only to express my opinion. It is my understanding that adding bridges to the database is something we all desire.

In my opinion, you should post any bridge you find that isn't in the database. Also, Luke and Nathan are very helpful in crosschecking and adding to listings so don't worry about the listing being perfect, you'll get help. Think of it as a collaborative effort.

I think this bridge was still in use as late as 1985 or 86; I remember crossing it on a trip from Lincoln, Nebraska to St. Louis, Missouri during a vacation in this period. We did the drive in reverse a year or so later and by then the new one had opened.

Posted January 31, 2016, by MG Craver Hurst

Members of the Greencastle High School Class of 1929, including my father Manford R. Craver and Dr. Anne S. Nichols and their friends used to go to the bridge, climb it, and dive into the water! This bridge is destined for destruction in 2016 and its charm will be missed. Nothing replacing it can fill the void.

Thank you for the photos and history of this little country bridge. It brought back good memories. I remember that back in the 1950's - 1960's, this bridge was the closest way to get to my grandmother's house when we visited from Michigan. I remember being about 7-8 years old when we drove over it. It was rickity and would make noise. When I grew up, I visited my folks who lived back in the "holler". It was about 1966. I decided to use the bridge. I came up to it, it looked pretty bad, so I decided to test it by walking it before driving over it. It was pretty scary, the wooden boards were coming loose, but I drove over it anyway like everyone else did. Whew! My family, the Kelley's, called it the Hannawah bridge. Today, I was thinking about it and looked it up on the internet spelled Hannawah and I found it even with the wrong spelling! Thank You! It's sad to see that it's gone. Too bad the govt. didn't repair it before it fell into ruins, but I guess bridges are expensive to build and there's probably too many regulations today. No more wooden/steel bridges, just steel bridges.

Visited and photographed this bridge and the adjacent railroad bridge today.

The original bridge at this location was a pony truss [Photo available from 1973 inspection]. There is a story that the truss was damaged during construction of US 24 by the highway contractor and the damaged truss was replaced with adjacent pre-stressed concrete box beams [Photo from 1977 inspection].

No evidence of there being a concrete arch at this location.

The structure was replace in 2007 with adjacent pre-stressed box beams on a spread footing located south of the original location to align with Lovers Lane. This realignment eliminated the STOP sign on Lovers Lane and vehicles stopping on the structure.

Given the pen chance for any separate categories....the snapshots in time showing different stages of those bridges are interesting to me. I don't spend a lot of time on that span style, still intrigues.

Art is in the eye of the viewer, those paintings of the past are sure treasures, they say these decades will be the lost ones with no bits to find in the shops of our past. All digital?

I'd like to see those abstracts, never did that style either.

Is the public allowed there to fish? The last time I was there signs were posted "No Trespassing " on the south side of the old road. Is there an easement access on all county bridges?

Posted January 28, 2016, by ArtS (asuckewer [at] knite [dot] com)

Julie, I absolutely agree! I previously uploaded an image of a painting that hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art of a bridge, done in the 1800's, that both conveys more than a period photo would and as there are no photos of that bridge, it represents the only image of a long lost bridge.

That said, as reference, unless they are technical drawings, art is subjective as opposed to objective, which, in my opinion, distracts from the overall bridge entry as a research tool. As an example, I plan on a series of bridge paintings as well. I plan on doing them in the style of Jackson Pollack. While each painting will represent a specific bridge, I highly doubt they would add value to the entry for the bridge as reference documents. Thus my suggestion of a separate category.

Also, my previous post was sincere, I really did break out in laughter when I flipped through all of Douglas' sketches.

Posted January 28, 2016, by Julie Bowers (jbowerz1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Art (and I don't mean Art S) is as valid as any of the photographs. What truly is the problem? Don't look at them if you aren't interested. Can you draw? I do paintings of bridges too, and I've posted a few. I'll start posting some more. At one point I had intended to do a painting for every bridge we do, can't keep up, maybe this will be incentive.

Posted January 27, 2016, by ArtS (asuckewer [at] knite [dot] com)

Oh my god! That's awesome! Thanks for the comment, otherwise I would never have looked. I literally laughed when I saw the number of drawings! I didn't realize Douglas did more that one picture per bridge. Now, if we could just convince him to do a new picture of this bridge every day, we'd be all set.

It's too bad we can't have a separate section as a repository of the vast pencil sketch collection - we could have 'guess the bridge' contests :^)

Mead Avenue Bridge (Pennsylvania)
Posted January 25, 2016, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

This bridge was built by a company whose name history is confusing and both on this website and my own HistoricBridges .org, this has resulted in what could only be called a "category mess" on both websites. I have tried to piece together the convoluted history:

It appears that T. B. White and Sons of New Brighton, Pennsylvania formed ca. 1868 when Timothy B. White began building iron bridges (he had previously built bridges but apparently only timber). Apparently the company was officially called T. B. White and Sons but as the plaque on Mead Avenue Bridge shows it was sometimes titled as Penn Bridge Works. Ca. 1878 it appears the company moved to Beaver Falls following a fire at New Brighton. However, it is noted that the name Penn Bridge Company was formed in 1887.

See HAER data pages for this bridge: http://loc.gov/pictures/item/oh1600/

The above documentation was my source for this brief overview. Adding to the confusion with this company is a listing for T & S White and one for Samuel P. White

HAER http://lcweb2.loc.gov/master/pnp/habshaer/pa/pa3900/pa3994/d... provides a brief discussion of Samuel P. White, who also played a role in this company. At the age of 14, Samuel P. White (b. 1847) began working with his father, Timothy B. White, a bridge builder and contractor. When the company later moved to Beaver Falls, it fell under the management of Samuel White and his brothers.

Posted January 25, 2016, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

Given the location of this bridge, and the date of its construction, I strongly believe that "J. B. White" is a typo, and should refer to T. B. White and Sons of New Brighton, PA. This haer documentation http://lcweb2.loc.gov/master/pnp/habshaer/oh/oh1600/oh1600/d... for a different bridge noted that White did build timber bridges, and originally was a carpenter.

Posted January 25, 2016, by Kelly (wildbilly0690 [at] hotmail [dot] com)

I have family right down the road from this bridge. We used to drive 2 hours to get here when I was a kid and we always got to cross this old iron bridge unless the river was so high it flowed over the deck. It was pretty sad when they built the new bridge and totally cut the road from the old bridge. Grampa told me that anyone could buy of for $1, but you have to insure it, hence, nobody bought it. I don't know how true that is. I drive by it about once a year now, it brings back fond memories from when I was a kid in the 70's. I hope it stands another 100 years!
