Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, BRIDGE AT ASYLUM STREET, HARTFORD, CONN. §ERE WE have illustrated the highest art of the bridge builder. At an expense of $500,000, one-half paid by the city of Hartford, and one-fourth each by the N. Y., N. H. & H. R. R. Co. and the N. Y. & N. E. R. R. Co., the State of Connecticut ordered the grade of Asylum Street, at Hartford, Conn., separated from the grade of the railroad tracks by carrying the railroad tracks over the street. There is probably not a railroad crossing in this country where there is such heavy and frequent passing of teams and pedestrians as at this point, and it became absolutely necessary to separate the two grades. The location did not admit of a stone arch, there not being sufficient room to get a proper rise, so that the authorities adopted the concrete bridge as the very best thing possible to be obtained. The bridge as shown, consists of a double track, plate girder, the girders being placed 32 feet apart on centers, with floor beams and stringers, carrying a double line of railroad between. Between the iron stringers are placed corrugated iron arches, and above this asphalt concrete, making a bridge as strong and as rigid as a stone arch. Each railroad is provided with a bridge of the same construction as that shown on page 55. Each of the four girders on these two bridges weighed 40 tons, or the four girders weighed 160 tons in the aggregate—the heaviest single plate girder ever built in this country.
