There were enough clues.... except maybe for Frank, unless it was the wet roads this morning that dulled his enthusiasm! What a great road, and neat area to ride around in on a crystal clear 75 degree morning. Thanks so much for leading me there!

Here's the New Tag....( I had a nice old tavern picked out, but it really was too close to Knee's tag.)





Either end of the bridge will do. The first one is the fun one, accessed by a nice bike path along the river, but I'm not sure if it's legal. The other end is.

This is the signature feature of the bridge. Cast wrought iron Phoenix columns with the parts riveted together:





"The Civil War years brought contracts for the highly successful 3 inch Ordnance Rifle, yet the success of the rifle probably does not compare with the firm's greater claim to historical significance: the invention, fabrication, and sale of the famous Phoenix Column.* It was invented by Samuel Reeves in 1862. The Phoenix Column is hollow and circular and made up of four, six, or eight wrought-iron segments that are flanged and riveted together."

The clue..... The bridge is NOT in Hibernia!

Nice job, Knee!

Was just about to compile the clues for those who were having trouble finding it in Hibernia!

Thanks for the confirmation.

New Tag:
Call the place for permission to get the money shot. If you want to cheap out, a photo of the sign at the front entrance is acceptable.

Fine tag, guys. That's a nice bridge, I'm surprised it wasn't snapped up in the bridge-tagging frenzy last year.

I think this is it.

No sign of the historical marker I expected.



It's so quiet here. Don't think I'll call the number this early,though;

I was looking for this at the tag site, but it doesn't seem to exist any more:



Phone is acting weird, maybe it was the venture into PA.

Jimmy,
I got the inside info you requested on the shuttle. You forgot the last digit on your #. Check your pm's.
