The Kellams Bridge, also known as the Little Equinunk Bridge, is a suspension bridge spanning the Delaware River between Stalker, Pennsylvania, and Hankins, New York.

History[edit]

The bridge was built in 1889 and opened in 1890. It was originally a toll bridge.[1]

The deck of the bridge underwent major repairs in 1936, including replacement of the original wooden deck with the steel deck which remains today. The bridge was damaged by the June 2006 flooding of the Delaware River, but was repaired in October 2006.
