A number of the featured bridges played key roles in Maryland’s history and these treasures are found throughout the State’s landscape. Consider Washington County’s Roxbury Mill Bridge, a powerful limestone structure over Antietam Creek that dates back to 1824 and carried eager early American settlers westward. Today, the steel beams of the William Preston Lane Jr. Memorial Bay Bridge arching over the Chesapeake Bay continues to unite the State’s western and eastern shores. Witness first-hand the diverse beauty of the Free State from the perspective of these creations that stand mightily in defiance of time, as well as those which exemplify modern of engineering concepts.
