Route 66 over Stony Kill,
Village of Chatham, New York

Designer:
New York State Department of Transportation,
Poughkeepsie, NY

Contractor:
Harrison & Burrowes, Bridge Construction, Glenmont, NY

The bridge was built in 1886 and modified in 1920. The bridge was fully rehabilitated to restore its historic character and original integrity using postcards of the bridge from 1909 while meeting today's safety, traffic, and structural needs. The planners decided on the use of stonefaced parapet with replicated wrought iron rail along on the top instead of building a dual rail system-ornate rail and highway rail, side by side.
