Notes
  • In an email dated January 16, 2000, Don Sayenga provided information about the location of this bridge. Generally attributed to Uniontown (the seat of Fayette County, PA), Mr. Sayenga offers some clues about the bridge's true location. "[James Finley] stated that he built it near the home of his friend Meason which implies a connection for the iron as Meason was making iron. Meason's home has survived by the way, a beautiful place. Finley stated it was a combination contract with the cost split between two counties, and he stated it was built over Jacob's Creek which is the county boundary. He also makes it clear it was on the road to Greensburg. The only place the old road crossed Jacob's Creek is just south of Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania. On the geodetic survey maps this spot is marked "Iron Bridge" but there is no town there. The last time I was there I saw a sign that said "Iron Bridge" on an automobile scrap yard. I found absolutely no trace of the bridge, but it was not very big, so there was no need for a huge abutment."
  • First suspension bridge with a rigid level deck.

Notes
  • From Dunlap's Creek Bridge: "The first recorded bridge across Dunlap's Creek was a wooden structure constructed prior to 1774. It was repaired in 1801, but was destroyed during a spring storm in 1808. A chain-link suspension bridge was built on the site in 1809; it collapsed under the weight of snow and a heavily laden wagon in 1820. A third bridge, another wooden structure, built in 1821 also failed. The present bridge is thus the fourth bridge at the site."

References:AAJ, BOB, BPL, GHD, HBE, LAB, PTS2
Principals:Josiah White, Erskine Hazard
Use:Footbridge
Status:Removed
Main cables:Wire (iron)
Main span:393.75f
Notes
  • Narrow footbridge. First wire bridge in North America. HBE notes "first wire suspension bridge in any country."
  • Often described as having collapsed under the weight of ice and snow, Don Sayenga notes that no contemporary sources confirm this demise. Since the nearby chain bridge did fail under weight of ice and snow, he believes this fate has been misattributed to the White and Hazard footbridge. Don believes the bridge was just dismantled at some point after June, 1816.
  • Al Zagofsky also wrote to explain there was no evidence of this bridge collapsing under weight of ice and snow. Al writes: "According to an original source Captain Joshua Rowley Watson, who inspected the bridge on June 15, 1816: '...There was a bridge, but which by the weight of ice and snow, has been carried away.' This refers to the previous bridge that the cable bridge was temporarily replacing. I did not see any cause for failure of the wire rope bridge. My guess is that it was removed when the regular bridge was repaired. The same article shows a sketch that he made, showing the main span to be 407 feet. I am looking at the Canal History and Technology Proceedings Vol 5, March 22, 1986."

References:BDR, SHO
Principals:Chauncy Thomas, John A. Roebling
Use:Vehicular
Status:Dismantled, 1941
Main cables:Wire (iron)
Suspended spans:1
Notes
  • BDR: Built 1856, severely damaged 1859, rebuilt, collapsed Jan. 1st 1865, rebuilt 1866. Dale writes: "A respected historian, John Willard Johnston, who knew Chauncey Thomas personally and visited the area during his ownership of the toll bridge, insisted that Thomas, as the builder, was grossly incompetent."
  • Originally constructed with one main span, the center pier was added during the 1866 reconstruction.
  • Don Sayenga's research leads him to conclude the bridge was completed in the fall of 1855. He notes an article from the Pike County Democrat (June 21, 1872) stating the bridge was completed in 1855. The article also notes the 1859 collapse occurred on July 2, 1859. Don's interest in this bridge is piqued by the connection to John Roebling, "...this bridge seems to be the only John Roebling bridge that failed in service..." Roebling prepared plans, for the original bridge, for Chauncy Thomas (who, by Dale's account was inexperienced).

Notes
  • Often mistakenly called a "chain" bridge, this is a "change" bridge. Dale Oswald explains (in the context of the Aldrich Change Bridge at Palmyra, NY), "A change bridge is one with low railings and an underpass that allowed draft teams to move from one side of the canal to the other without unhitching, cloverleaf-style."

  • BDR: Completed 1889. BDR also states the bridge underwent "major repairs" in 1936 including replacement of the wooden deck with a steel deck. I suspect the entire bridge was replaced at this time. Older photos of the bridge show wooden towers, a wooden deck, and a completely different cable arrangement.

  • SSB has an old picture of the bridge from a "Roebling publication". The original caption inside the picture says: "Practical application of Roebling Bridge research is the Lumberville footbridge which spans the Delaware River about twenty miles above Trenton. Pictured below, it utilizes four slabs of Roebling prestressed concrete and the Roebling-developed cable stiffening principle for the first time in the Western Hemisphere." and the authors of SSB go on to describe it asa "two-hinged braced cable suspension footbridge."

1955 (footbridge)
Jersey Shore vicinity, Pennsylvania, USA (Pine Creek - Boy Scouts Camp Kline)
Bridgemeister ID:591
Coordinates:N 41.273683 W 77.323883
Maps:Acme, Google, MapQuest
Principals:Williamsport Technical Institute students
Use:Footbridge
Status:Destroyed, 1972
Main cables:Wire
Notes
  • The postcard (postmarked 1961) showing the bridge says, "The largest foot-suspension bridge in the East crosses Pine Creek at the Boy Scouts' Camp Kline, north of Jersey Shore, Pa. Built in 1955 by Williamsport Technical Institute students with materials donated by area industries. Valued over $25,000, the 409-foot span has concrete anchors and a 14-ton capacity. For 35 years previous, boats were used to reach the popular 360-acre camp-site, donated to the Scouts in 1920 by James N. Kline, a Williamsport merchant." It's doubtful this was anywhere close to being a 409-foot bridge.
  • The message written on the postcard is amusing (though unrelated to the bridge): "Hi Mom and Dad, I had a fine time up here. I went on a boat trip Monday around the island. We got half way around and Tiny tiped [sic] his boat then we tiped ours. I didn't get to sleep until 2:00 Monday night. I am going to try to swim a mile today. I don't do nothing but lay in my bunk and listen to records. Ken.""
  • Patrick O'Donnell is familiar with this area and notes that the bridge is gone, but the concrete footings are still visible. He suspects 1972's Hurricane Agnes brought down this bridge. Denny Keller confirms Patrick's suspicion with a firsthand account of Hurricane Agnes' impact on this bridge: "21 June 1972 is a date that I will never forget. I along with 340+ kids and adults were at Camp Kline during our yearly 4-H camp. I was the very last (along with the National Guard that performed the rescue) to leave and walk across the bridge that once stood at 11PM on the evening of June 21st. I along with two other senior 4-H counselors. I can remember the last trip across the bridge while mobile homes, trees, and all type of debris were floating down the creek and hitting the bridge underneath."

  • Rush Wickes writes: "It collapsed once during the mid-1980's due to being overloaded by mischievous Scout campers. It was subsequently rebuilt, explaining the mismatched steel and wood tower combination. The "W" in the tower may very well refer to the phrase, 'Wimachtendienk, Wingolauchsik, Witahemui', or WWW, a motto of the Order of the Arrow honor group. The Octararo lodge of the honor group has its ceremonial fire pit just beyond the steel tower."

Notes
  • James Boxmeyer writes: "I was involved in a small way in the bridge's construction... Here are a few details about the design. I think it was constructed in the late 1990's or maybe 2000-2001. The camp director said it was designed by people who are familiar with construction of similar bridges by Christian missionaries in other countries where resources are limited and suspension bridges are easier to construct. I used to work for an elevator company. I gave the cable to Camp Sankanac that they said would be used in the main suspension cables as well as the vertical cables that support the walking surface. I think they might have also used some of the cable I donated to hold up the walking surface, but have not seen the bridge in person, so cannot verify that. The main suspension cables had been used in an elevator. They are called traction steel 1/2 inch diameter hoist cables 8x19 construction with a fiber core. Tensile strength of each cable is about 14,500 pounds. The vertical cables are 3/8 inch (without a fiber core) and had been used in a construction hoist."
