Crosswicks Creek Bridge
Posted March 8, 2014, by ArtS (asuckewer [at] knite [dot] com)

Visited this bridge today. When I figure out how to post pictures, I'll put them up - don't hold your breath. It is a standard Dean and Westbrook / Phoenix bridge. The bridge sits in a in a natural setting with no homes visible. Only the pavement and modern guardrails give away the era.

Although the paint is shot and there are a couple nicks in the beams, they are otherwise in great shape, no pack rust, or pitting. The same cannot be said for the tension members. Although they are original, they are bent and loose, one is broken. Looking over the side shows the original structure has been substantially reenforced by a modern structure with modern floor beams spaced evenly between the originals. I suspect there is a whole modern structure supporting the road and the truss is now decorative.

Regards,
