Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of the only bridge from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Kingsbury Run. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

  • BMC describes a feud between the neighborhoods on either side of the bridge that led to events in July 1966: "someone set fire to the wooden deck and ripped out fifteen feet of the southern portion. The bridge now is considered a nuisance."
