Long Description:
From the website:
The present bridge is the fourth to span the Delaware River at this location.
At the turn of the twentieth century, came the three Perkins brothers from Horseheads, New York. They were structural iron men, bridge builders, and they had in their possession three magnificent trusses of pin-hung wrought iron which they transported to the Delaware and erected upon stone piers in the river. With no great ceremony, the Dingmans Bridge was opened for traffic in November, 1900.
Date Built: 06/01/1900

Length of Span:
I couldn't find it anywhere, but my guess is about 300 feet.
