"Bridge History - The Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge, officially the
Veterans Memorial Bridge, and once called the Lancaster-York Intercounty Bridge, is a
reinforced concrete arch bridge that spans the Susquehanna River between Columbia and
Wrightsville, Pennsylvania. The Wiley-Maxon Construction Company began building the bridge in
1929 and finished construction in 1930. The bridge was designed by James B. Long and is
approximately 5,183 feet long. It is believed to be the longest concrete arch brige in the
world. The bridge is designated State Route 462 and is listed on the National Register of
Historic Places, and is also a Historic Civil Engineering Landmark." -- Source: http://impact-christian.com/BridgeBust.aspx.
