Considering the other page is one entry for a handful of bridges, this entry could be made into an entry for one of them, the other for another, etc.

Posted September 20, 2018

Could be a later re-encasement.

Posted September 19, 2018

The bridge is part of a historic district, and the NRHP nomination form for said district cites ca. 1936, so the NBI is definitely wrong.

Jeff: If you look at the first postcard, the roadway begins on the right side of the bridge, and end on the left side.

Since it creates an "X", they called it "Criss-Cross Bridge".

Art: Check your email.

Dana/Kay often omits RR names or status (And sometimes design) if they don't know or cannot find them.

Sometimes irksome, but understandable considering some users get themselves worked up over the minutiae instead of just changing it.

Now now, don't tease him too hard or he'll make a YouTube video about you too. :')

Nice find, Mike!

RE: Three truss spans on the ground
Posted September 10, 2018

I think those may be the spans from the Craig Bridge, which are supposedly going to be relocated.

RE: Primary photo

The uploader can choose to make their photo the default, but AFAIK only James has the power to make any picture he wants the default.

Jason, thank you for the information!

Posted September 9, 2018

It was probably built with one due to logging/lumbering on the river. Traffic which dried up in the thirties:

I think the 1999 "rehab" date was a replacement

Posted September 5, 2018

According to old maps from HistoricAerials and this: http://www.trainweb.org/chris/swpenn.html

This may have been built in 1871 for the Mt Pleasant and Broad Ford Railroad, which eventually became the Mt. Pleasant Branch of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad.

Posted September 2, 2018

I would definitely consider this an arch, not a culvert.

Culverts are typically small. This is anything but small.

Posted September 1, 2018

The style of postcard is mid 1900s, and already shows riveted connections vs the pinned connections prominent in 1890s bridge construction.

So this isn't an 1891 bridge, but it likely replaced one, so I'll make up an entry for it.
