Notes
Survey number HAER DE-35
Significance: State Highway Bridge No. 2 is a highly ornamental example of a concrete-encased steel girder bridge. The construction of a new steel girder bridge for the Rockland crossing reflects a significant trend which occurred in the 1920's and 1930's in New Castle County, as the Levy Court pursued a systematic program of replacing obsolescent covered bridges with structures embodying modern technology.
