Salisbury, NY, August 19, 2004 - The restoration work on the Salisbury Bridge was recently completed with an infusion of $153,000 in federal funds.

The fifty-foot bridge, built in 1875 by Alvah Hopson, crosses Spruce Creek using a multiple kingpost truss with Burr Arch.

The bridge roadway has been replaced as well as parts of the truss. The roof system has been renewed with new steel sheathing.

For details of the work on the bridge see "Buskirk and Salisbury Center Bridges Repair Progress", by Dick Wilson, on this website.
