I had no idea how they moved coal prior to the day of the railroad. This was very interesting mental picture of how it was accomplished and the pure genius of those who designed and built the canals and bridge. Interesting little museum is on...More

Is there a weight limit on Roebling Bridge? Can I cross with a bus? If so is there a height limit? Thanks

You can cross with a bus but but some passengers may have to walk across the bridge. When I do the eagle watch trips only 22 passengers are allowed on the bus. There is no height limit I am not sure what the weight limit is.
