Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT MERIDEN, CONN. §ERE IS represented another style of plate girder bridge which differs from the one shown on page 33, this being a deck bridge, while that shown on page 33 is a through bridge. This bridge is located across the Quinipiac river on Hanover street, in the city of Meriden, Conn., and consists of one span of 50 feet, with a roadway 30 feet wide in the clear, and two sidewalks, each 10 feet wide in the clear. The distance from the top of the floor of the bridge to the bed of the stream was ample to put in a deck span, and as the travel over the bridge is heavy and very frequent, the authorities decided to use the very best form of bridge which they could get for their location, and therefore adopted a plate girder. The bridge consists of three girders, one on each curb line and one under the center of the roadway as shown in the cut. These girders are thoroughly connected by floor beams with lateral braces, making a stiff, rigid and very strong construction. Meriden is one of the most enterprising cities of the New England States, and parties who desire to see a first-class deck-plate girder bridge, in every way, shape, and manner, will do well to examine this bridge.
