Engineering Study for Shaw Bridge
Advocates for the historic Shaw Bridge in Claverack have received a grant from the Preservation League of New York State to do an engineering study to investigate ways to preserve the 1870 iron bridge. Shaw Bridge is believed to be the only surviving double-span Whipple bowstring truss bridge in the country. The plan is to restore the bridge for pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Nathan Mayberg has more on the story in the Register-Star: "Claverack's Shaw Bridge redeemed."
