Notes
  • 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."
