Construction to the historic Stone Bridge at Manassas National Battlefield began the week of October 9 and is now expected to wrap up in Spring 2018. Although originally intended to be completed in one season, construction will need to be divided into two phases to safely complete the project and address more significant deterioration than expected.The bridge will remain open during most of the work.

Stone Bridge Construction
While contemporary methods and materials will be used to ensure long-term durability, this work will not change the bridge’s historic look and feel.
Additional work includes repairing damage to the center pier caused by years of erosion and replacing the deteriorating cement coating on the underside of the bridge. Missing and damaged stones on the exterior of the bridge will be replaced and repaired using techniques employed when the bridge was completed in the 1880s.
