Wangum Bridge Interpretive Panel

Paupack Township, Wayne County, PennsylvaniaWangum Bridge Interpretive panel
Client: Wayne County, Pennsylvania, Planning Commission

The Wangum Road Bridge, built in 1903, was a one-lane, 89-foot-long, single-span, Warren truss bridge that carried Wangum Road over Middle Creek. The purpose of the Wangum Bridge Project is to provide a structure that safely maintains connectivity within the roadway network for travelers along Wangum Road. The National Register-eligible Wangum Road Bridge was replaced with a new structure on the same alignment. As part of Section 106 mitigation measures for the Adverse Effect, A.D. Marble Communications prepared an interpretive panel for placement in the vicinity of the new bridge highlighting the history and construction methods of bridges at this location.

A.D. Marble Communications also developed an educational component on the area’s transportation history, including the Gravity Railroad, for incorporation into Camp Watonka’s (an adjacent summer camp) summer science program curriculum.
