In 1907 the construction of this stone arch bridge was planned and supervised

by Patrick J. Delay, the master mason of the Delaware and Hudson Railway.

Explosives were used to blast away slate, to make a shelf on which the cut stone

for the arch and wing walls were laid. The creek was placed in a wooden box constructed by Patrick J. Delay's workmen. This was a bridge for an interurban railway which in the same year built a station in downtown Saratoga Springs constructed by Bartholomew Gaffney & Son of the same city.
