  2. From the Oldest to the Newest

    The oldest covered bridge in Lancaster County, PA is now revitalized and open to traffic. Pequea No. 7, known locally as Neff’s Mill Covered Bridge, had been rated in poor overall condition.

All improvements were made while keeping two lanes of traffic open…

  8. Stone Masonry Success

    Stone masonry can really bring a bridge project together. At the State Route 2047 Meyersdale Bridge, a stone arch bridge in Pennsylvania, masons recently used their specialized skills to re-stack the downstream spandrel. In bridge design, a spandrel is the space between the outer curve of an arch and the wall or ceiling of the…
