The Rockville Bridge is a significant historical structure. Parker through truss bridges built in the early 20th century are common in the mid-west and eastern parts of the United States but there were only a few of them built in the State of Utah and of those the Rockville Bridge is the last survivor. Despite the years of use and neglect, the overall structural integrity of the bridge and its setting have been very well preserved. In August of 1995 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Rockville Bridge has served the needs of the area well for over 90 years and if things work out it will continue to do so into the future.
At this time Rockville has raised the money needed for the matching funds for the Rockville Bridge Restoration Project that is slated to begin in October of 2017 - thanks to the generous support of people everywhere. The Town is now looking at the long-term future of the bridge and is continuing to raise money for the bridge's ongoing maintenence needs. The plan is to keep the Historic Bridge in good condition for as far into the future as is possible.
You can help with this effort to preserve a historically significant bridge that is the last of its kind. If you are in Rockville, you can make a donation right at the bridge in the donation box there. You can also donate at the Town Office, co-located with the Post Office, at 43 East Main Street.
