London Bridge

The London Bridge crosses the Thames River. Although the London bridge is not remarkably long or large physically, it has an extensive history. The Romans built the roots of what would later become the site of the London Bridge around 50 AD, and the story continued on from there into what is now the modern version of the bridge.

What is information on the 993rd Treadway Bridge Company?

Here is information submitted: * My father was based in Wellesbourne, Warwickshire at the beginning of 1944. My father is coloured - was the 993rd a coloured unit? * My grandfather, Robert "Bob" Stillwagon was the 1st Sgt of the 993rd Treadway Bridge Company. He passed away in 1983. I know he participated in the Normandy Invasion and Battle of the Bulge. He was injuried in a jeep accident and returned to the States. I do know he went to reunions several times. He joined the army at Ft. Riley and was in the 9th Engineers (horse mounted) before moving to the Treadway Bridge Company. * My father, Marvin Achterhoff, does remember Bob Stillwagon very well! They served together through-out the war, including at Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge. In fact, I remember going to an Army reunion with my parents when I was a child in the 1960's down in Missouri, and meeting your Grandfather. * My father, Walter M. Plummer, was a corporal in the 993rd Treadway Bridge Company. He, and my mother, are still alive and live in the house they purchased after the war. He participated in the Normandy Invasion and the Battle of the Bulge also. I have a list of all the members of the 993rd Treadway Company. According to this, Herschel McCloud was from Hamden, Missouri and Philip Hendricks was from Springfield, Missouri, Charles Easley was from Baxter Springs, Kansas and Howard K. Gillson was from Brainerd, Minnesota.

What truss type is the London Bridge?

It's a late nineteenth century Bascule - twin leaf at that. It is a sort of prefabricated Suspension bridge with the bascule machinery in the towers for the two folding leaves.

This is a description of Tower Bridge - not London Bridge.

'

It's also not a suspension bridge. A suspension bridge has a deck suspended from cables, and cannot be opened. The rest of the technical description is correct.

What is the oldest bridge in the US?

AnswerChoate Bridge - Constructed in 1764, it is the oldest documented bridge in Massachusetts and the second oldest documented bridge in the United States. State Route 1A (South Main Street) over the Ipswich River in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Too much disagreement on which bridge is actually THE OLDEST bridge in US.

According to Wikipedia encyclopedia, the Frankford Avenue Bridge in Philadelphia is the oldest (see: http:/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankford_Avenue_Bridge). According to this article, the bridge was built in 1697 or 1698. It is also known as the Pennypack Creek Bridge, the Holmesburg Bridge, and the King's Highway Bridge (probably it's original name).

*Actually this answer is false. The oldest bridge in the US is the old stone arch bridge next to the jewel mill (glen mill) in Rowley, MA. Built in 1643 and is still in use today.

How do graffiti taggers manage to get thir work on the undersides of freeway bridges and overpasses?

Here in Las Vegas one of our firefighters approached some taggers while they were in the process of tagging. They were in a truck with what looked like a "Cherry Picker" or a small hoist in the bed of the truck. the painter was hooked up in a safety harness and hanging over the bridge. The truck stopped and rolled slowly as he tagged with both cans. These are not rookies. Go to My Space or You Tube where you can watch over 4000 videos of graffiti in action!
