Often claiming the status of the longest arch bridge in the world, the Rockville Railroad Bridge measures 3820 feet as it spans the Susquehanna River. Its 48 arches, a masterpiece of railroad bridge engineering, support four sets of tracks. Built by the Pennsylvania Railroad, the two year project was completed in 1902. Here, just north of Pennsylvania’s capital city, the bridge remains an important link between the east and west, and the major cities of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
