About this title:

Synopsis: Wooden bridges are inimitably American. Their practicality, their individuality, their ruggedness - traditional characteristics associated with our country. From the first days of colonization, our streams and rivers have been a blessing and a bane. The routes of commerce found them a blessing as long as they were along the water courses, but a bane when needs demanded routes across them Possibly the first bridge crossing in the United States was Coronado's bridge of 1541, which is reported to have been built over the Pecos River, or one of its branches , in New Mexico. Presumably it was a wooden trestle bridge. One tradition indicates that the earliest bridge in the East was one of a similar type built in 1634 over the Neponset River in Massachusetts. However, there is also evidence that a wooden bridge was built in 1611 over the Back River at Frigett Landing near Jamestown, Virginia. It is the hope of our Committee that this publication of the American Society of Civil Engineers will not only be of interest to its members, but that it will foster a greater public appreciation of the role of the American wooden bridge in America's development, and thus aid in their preservation as landmarks.
