Stone arch bridges have been built for hundreds upon hundreds of years, and are still being built in some parts of the world. The beautiful and intriguing architecture of these bridges is well known and is still viewed with awe today. There are many stone arch bridges in the world, most of which still faithfully carry the road — just as they have done for centuries.
On this site, we will discuss many of the varied stone arch bridge topics, from how they were built to various historical bridges. We have a particular fascination with Kansas stone arch bridges (of which there are over 200); however, we won’t be entirely limited to Kansas bridges.
Regardless, we hope you enjoy the beauty, architecture, and ingenuity of these enduring structures.
