A-4 • Funkstown Bridge No. 2 | 1833
On East Oak Ridge Road in Funkstown East of Alt Route 40

Funkstown’s second bridge was built in 1833 and is notable not only for its beauty, but for its unique design. Three arches grow progressively longer as they march up the hill to the west. Its builder, George Weaver, also artistically combined rounded and pyramidal arches on the downstream side of his creation, which like its upstream neighbor still carries heavy traffic, although it has never been widened. Plans for its preservation, while accommodating increased traffic, are under way. With parking nearby, the bridge is a good a base for a tour of Funkstown.
