Eddyville Bridge
Posted June 26, 2016, by Barbara Rice (waywildrice [at] hotmail [dot] com)

My father, Kenneth Smith, was the engineer in charge on this bridge. I have a photo album of the bridge being put together- it was built in two pieces at Dobbs Ferry, then floated up the Hudson on barges to be placed. Quite the engineering job, as this was done in 70 feet of tidal water. The process took three days to line up the arch. I am attaching a photo in case you'd like to use it.

Thank You!
