Eliot Memorial Bridge
The Eliot Memorial Bridge, a stone arch pedestrian bridge, was constructed circa 1904 in the Blue Hills Reservation. The bridge carries the popular Skyline Trail over a ravine. In certain areas where the mortar had deteriorated, outer face stones had fallen to the ground and left voids in the stone structure. DCR wanted to undertake localized repairs to address these voids and asked SGH to evaluate the historic mortar’s composition and make recommendations for an appropriate repair mortar.
