New River Gorge Bridge

Recommended Posts

Anyone wanting a copy of the New River Gorge Bridge please email me at richardlhll@wmconnect.com. I had posted a message that I have been unsucessful at trying to upload the file, and had asked if someone would try but no offers. The bridge was made by Daniel Greenwwood of NZ.,with photograqphs and data I had supplied him. There is no hard surface to the bridge, and he did not know a way to get the autogen trees back in the bridge. The New River Gorge Bridge at the time of construction in 1977 was the longest single arch construction in the World. We have a bridge day the third Saturday of October. The South bound lanes are closed to allow wisitors to walk its 3,030 ft lenght, or parachutists to plunge to the New River some 876 feet below.Richard;
