STONE ARCH BRIDGES
Hunterdon County's Interest in stone arch bridges began in 1992, when a developer wanted to raze a stone arch bridge so that a road could be widened for a new development. The discussions that ensued sparked an interest in three County Departments to further research the bridges. The County began its own photographic inventory of the bridges, but later consulted outside professionals to help them inventory the bridges.
Hunterdon County's Stone Arch Bridge Inventory includes a wide range of information that will be used by the County to prepare a long term bridge maintenance and preservation plan and an illustrated brochure and tour guide for the public.
