Hilton Parkway Bridges – Baltimore MD

Description

"The valley of Gwynns Falls contains a small stream which is a tributary of the Patapsco River. North and south through traffic in West Baltimore was barred b this valley. A new parkway, including two bridges, was opened for use in November 1938 eliminating this barrier.

The larger bridge has three segmental spans each 90 feet in length and two end spans of 60 feet each. It is constructed of reinforced concrete and, with the exception of the arch soffits, is faced with granite in two shades of pink. The granite was set in place before the concrete was poured and is securely anchored to it. The face of the granite is in general 18 inches in front of the concrete. The bridge provides a roadway 40 feet in width and two 6-foot sidewalks.

The entire project, which included the two bridges and approximately a mile of roadway, was completed at a construction cost of $550,505 and a project cost of $558,554."
