Historic Bridges of Pennsylvania

 Overview

Pennsylvania is a major area of coverage for this website, second only to Michigan, with a focus on the western part of the state. The Commonwealth has (or had) one of the richest varieties and highest quantities of historic metal truss bridges in the country. Unfortunately, little to no effort is being made to preserve these bridges, even the particularly rare bridges and those for which preservation alternatives are plentiful and feasible, and as such the population of historic bridges is dropping at an alarming rate. No other state in the Union has a poorer track record for preserving historic bridges than Pennsylvania. Lack of respect for historic bridges in Pennsylvania can even be seen in the placement of vertical clearance signs, where bridge owners frequently go out of their way to cover up builder plaques with vertical clearance signs! It is hoped that these pages and discussions will raise awareness of the importance of these bridges and finding alternatives to demolition. HistoricBridges.org always welcomes any opportunity to work with PennDOT and other agencies to discover preservation solutions and bring change to historic bridge preservation policy.
