Bridges: <<  <  1-100  101-189  >  >>

This is a list of bridges 1 through 100 (of 189 total) in the suspension bridge inventory that are undated, unnamed, and whose primary use is other than footbridge. Please email (aspan@bridgemeister.com) with corrections, suggestions, submissions, and criticism. I frequently make updates and add images. Please allow time for the page and images to load. The inventory lists more than 2,500 suspension bridges (more than 1,200 of which are pictured). Click the small images to see a larger image. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page. Check the inventory introduction page for more information about this list.

Notes
  • Built late 1950's or 1960. Pictured and described in Roebling ad in July 1960 issue of Civil Engineering. Built to transport concrete aggregate during construction of the dam. Likely removed.
(conveyor bridge)
Proctor, Vermont, USA (Otter Creek - Sutherland Falls)
Bridgemeister ID:1692
Use:Conveyor
Status:Removed
Main cables:Wire
Notes
  • The postcard doesn't show much, but I have seen other photos that show a large wood-shingled tower at one end of the bridge. The bridge was likely completed in the late 1800's.
  • I categorized this bridge as a "conveyor" bridge although it was not mechanized. Robert Ratti provided the following information: "it was a carrier of marble slurry from the Vermont Marble Co. and ended in the swamp nearby... In 1936, I lived right at the end of the swamp and climbed on that waste carrier many times."

Notes
  • The postcard says "Suspension Bridge. Jefferson, S.D." The bridge pictured here may be a predecessor to the current pipeline suspension bridge at Ponca, Nebraska, eight miles west of Jefferson. Patrick S. O'Donnell visited this area in 2006 to photograph the Ponca bridge, but could not locate a pipeline bridge matching the postcard.
  • In late 2006, Pete Rissell writes that one of the piers from this pipeline bridge is still visible in the middle of the Missouri River: "In the early 1970s I visited the Ponca State Park and noticed a single concrete bridge support in the middle of the Missouri River. I always thought it was strange because there were no abandoned road or rail right-of-ways in that location... I'm sure that this concrete support matches the one in the foreground shown on your website's postcard labeled "Suspension Bridge, Jefferson SD". My guess is that the current Ponca Pipeline bridge (photographed in 2006) is the replacement because the former suspension bridge had to be relocated due to river flooding. The old concrete support is located approximately 1 mile up-river (to the northwest) from the current pipeline bridge." This pier is visible in satellite imagery at the location provided with this inventory entry.
  • In 2009, Dale Harkness writes: "I grew up on a farm only a few miles from the existing pipeline. I believe you are correct that the cement pier does belong to the original gas pipeline. My aunt told me that my grandfather was present while the bridge was being constructed. From my understanding, my grandfather had been filming the construction and almost photographed an unusual event where one of the piers crashed down to the ground after a failed attempt to raise it using a pivot." Dale also provided photos of the construction of the newer bridge in 1961.
  • The replacement span appears to have been demolished in late 2006 or 2007.

Notes
  • Described in a Roebling ad: "...carries 900 ft. of a 14 inch diameter stainless steel pulpline [build for Oxford Paper Co.] over a canal and uneven terrain. It has eight spans, the longest of which is 166 ft. Rigidity of the suspension system was achieved by running a pair of tie cables from one anchorage to the other, connecting all tower tops. The cost of a steel trestle to support this pulpline would have been much higher."
  • See (footbridge) - Rumford, Maine, USA. The pipelines were constructed as part of the same project.
