The Bridge That Never Was
by Joe Jonas
Milestones Vol 19 No 4 Winter 1994

Michael Durham of Beaver, who is the Executive Director of the Welfare Office in Rochester, made an interesting discovery some time ago as they were moving from their location on Jefferson St. to their new offices on Virginia Ave. He found a large planning book for Beaver County, dated 1943. It was created by Michael Baker Jr. Consulting Engineers and Planners of Rochester, Pa., former tenants of those offices. The book contained many potential and possible projects for the County, of which the bridge shown above was one of the most interesting, even though it never materialized.
