Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE BETWEEN CHESTERFIELD AND AUSABLE, N. Y. WE HAVE here illustrated a bridge built by us in 1888, between the town of Chesterfield, Essex County, N. Y., and the town of Ausable, Clinton County, N. Y. The bridge consists of one span of 240 feet, center to center of towers, and was built to replace an old suspension bridge, which succumbed to the action of the elements. One end of the bridge is anchored into the solid rock, but on the other end it was necessary to build a heavy stone pier into which the cables are securely anchored. In many locations this extra masonry for anchorages is found unnecessary, as the solid rock is found so near the surface that it makes a good and suitable buttress to pull against, and much better than when artificially constructed of masonry. The stiffening truss of the bridge shown is made out of plates and angles, the bridge being divided into 48 panels, each 5 feet, and connected to the cables at each panel point by a stirrup, which connects to the floor beam instead of the truss—a form of construction which commends itself. The bridge is very stiff, both vertically and laterally, and seems to meet the wants of the public in this location equally as well as a more expensive structure EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
