Heald Street Bridge, Spanning Conrail Railroad on South Heald Street (U.S. Route 13), Wilmington, New Castle County, DE

description

Summary

Significance: The Heald Street Bridge is a multiple span, embellished example of a concrete encased steel girder bridge. This commonly built type exemplifies the continuing expansion and improvement of the road network under the auspices of the Delaware State Highway Department. The department has assumed responsibility for construction and maintenance of all local roads in 1935; between 1935 and 1942, efforts focused on the improvement of rural roads and increasing road construction in towns and cities. Over 250 bridges were built during this period statewide; most were simply configured and unembellished. The Heald Street Bridge is an exceptional example of this type.
Survey number: HAER DE-27
