Notes
Survey number HAER DE-43
Significance: Delaware Bridge No. 179A was one of six intact historic metal truss highway bridges in Delaware. Structurally similar to Delaware Bridge No. 66 and 424 and produced by the prominent Edge Moor Iron Company of Wilmington, DE, Delaware Bridge No. 179A may be a product of that manufacturer as well. Structures like Delaware Bridge No. 179A also played a vital role in the economic development of rural, farming, and crossroad areas during the last quarter of the 19th century and well into the 20th century, as local transportation networks underwent initial phases of development.
