Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT MASSENA, ST. LAWRENCE CO., N. Y. k ERE WE have represented a bridge with a single span 235 feet in the clear, with a roadway 16 feet wide in the clear. This is a bridge which illustrates in a forcible manner our remarks in the introduction to this catalogue relating to long spans and narrow roadways, and the particular adaptability of the Parabolic Bridge to this class of structures. There is not a Pratt truss bridge or a Bow String girder, or, in fact, a Bridge of any kind in this country having an equal span and as narrow a roadway, that has as much lateral stiffness as this bridge—for the reason that the bridge has an independent chord under the floor which takes care of the wind load and the side vibration of the bridge. Parties contemplating long span bridges will do well to examine this bridge—or others built by us of equal and greater spans—before deciding what kind of a bridge to build. There are many long span bridges in the vicinity of Massena, as the width of the Racket river and the climatic conditions require long spans. Ice often forms in this river to a depth of four feet, and it is almost impossible to put up any kind of piers which will stand the pressure when the ice starts early in the Spring with severe high water. The cost of maintaining piers under these conditions, is greater than to build bridges in long single spans. The bridge as shown is taken direct from a photograph, but, owing to the fact that it rests on high abutments, the photograph is taken from the underside, and presents a rather peculiar appearance.
