Rehabilitation of the Frankford Avenue Bridge: The Nation's Oldest Highway Bridge
Thomson Hall/Alumnae Chapel
When a vehicular collision knocked over a portion of the masonry parapet wall on the Frankford Avenue Bridge, it led to the complete rehabilitation of the 321 year old landmark. This case study will focus on the power of planning, creating partnerships with the public and consulting parties and how the stewardship of an irreplaceable historic asset has resulted in the complete rehabilitation of an engineering marvel that will last another 300 years.
