Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT BINGHAMTON, N. Y. BOR SHORT spans, say not longer than 35 feet, there is nothing so good as a plate girder bridge. The one represented on the opposite page was built by us in 1886, at Binghamton, N. Y., and consists of one span of 29 feet, with a roadway 32 feet wide in the clear, and two sidewalks, each nine feet wide in the clear. Owing to the fact that the stream across which this bridge is located, at certain seasons of the year, is subjected to very severe freshets, it was desirable not to block up the water way more than was absolutely necessary. Therefore the bridge was made with girders, placed as shown, and the iron joist resting on the bottom flange of the main girders—in this way the depth of the bridge from the top of the plank to the lowest point of iron work did not exceed 10 inches. The bridge presents a very ornamental appearance—the girders between the roadway and sidewalk forming a very effectual barricade. For city and heavy country bridges, we recommend plate girders for spans as long as 50 feet to 60 feet. They are more expensive than a truss bridge, but the material is concentrated into so few parts that they are stiffer than any other form of bridge. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
