Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT WILLIAMSPORT, PA. ^^HE CUT on the opposite page shows a square end view and also a side view of the largest iron highway bridge in the State ® I © of Pennsylvania, which was built by us in 1885, across the Susquehanna River at Williamsport, Pa. The bridge consists of five spans of 200 feet each, with a roadway 18 feet wide in the clear, and replaced an old suspension bridge which was built there many years ago, and which had become entirely too light to carry the largely increasing"traffic. The bridge is owned by a joint corporation, and is used as a toll bridge. Notwithstanding the large expense of taking out the old suspension bridge and putting in a new, first-class, modern iron bridge, the revenue returned to the stockholders has so greatly increased, that the bridge has more than paid the extra cost involved. When the public get an idea that a bridge is weak or insufficient, and liable to collapse, they are not apt to cross it unless it is absolutely necessary, and where the revenue derived from a toll bridge depends entirely upon the amount of traffic, it is important that the brido-e should be of the best material, of the best construction, and the best design possible to be obtained.
