Allender Road Bridge, Spanning CSX Transportation railroad tracks at Allender Road, White Marsh, Baltimore County, MD
- Upscale 2x7680x6092
Significance: The Allender Road Bridge was declared eligible for National Register listing by the Maryland State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) because it retains two riveted plate girders, which were deemed its character-defining elements. These girders were part of a 60-foot turntable erected about 1892 by the West Virginia and Pittsburgh Railroad in Camden-on-Gauley, West Virginia. They were used in the construction of this standard-design wood-trestle bridge during World War II, when the availability of steel structural materials was limited. Their use represents the response and adaptation of the Baltimore and Ohio and other railroads to wartime scarcity.
