|Georgetown, District of Columbia and Virginia, USA (Potomac River)|
|Main cables:||Chain (iron)|
- BCW gives completion date of 1810 and says bridge was destroyed by flood two years later.
- Coordinates given are for the current crossing (VA SR123, still known locally as "Chain Bridge Road") which is on (or very close) to the alignment of Chain Bridge. Chain Bridge was the third bridge at this site. The current structure is the eighth and was completed in 1940.
