ADDITIONAL INFO:
Crosses 1/10 mile upstream from Lock and Dam No. 2. A ferry is shown on maps about 2/10 mile upstream from current bridge.

Lock and Dam No. 1, built in 1902, was located at 21st St. It was removed when the Emsworth Dam (1922) was built, thus providing the pool for the Pittsburgh Point area up to the Highland Park Bridge area.



An earlier Highland Park Bridge is shown on the 1907 USGS map, crossing from near the tunnel under the railroad at 19th St, Sharpsburg, to a landing at Baker St near the western end of the 1914 Heth's Run Bridge (Haight's Run). This older bridge is shown crossing the downstream tip of Six Mile Island, but the streets and island do not align as shown on the USGS map. This seems to indicate that Six Mile Island has moved downstream a distance roughly equal to it present length, so that the upstream tip now lies where the bridge would have crossed.
