(04/30/2017) A.D. Marble is pleased to announce that two of our cultural resource specialists, Dr. Michael Lenert (archaeology) and Russell Stevenson (historic structures), have been named delegated PennDOT Cultural Resource Professionals (CRPs). To attain this status, both Mike and Russ followed PennDOT’s rigorous training protocol, which involved months of on-the-job training with PennDOT’s CRPs, attendance at Scoping Field Views, preparation of Finding Forms, and coordination with PennDOT’s Central Office. This process began with our work on the Pennsylvania Rapid Bridge Replacement Public-Private Partnership (P3) Project, for which Mike and Russ guided over 200 bridge replacement projects through the Section 106 process. We would like to thank our PennDOT partners for their time, effort, and guidance in mentoring Mike and Russ and helping them achieve CRP status. Their new positions will allow Mike and Russ to act on PennDOT’s behalf as the CRPs for selected projects. They will continue to work with their existing clients, and we will identify opportunities that utilize their new capabilities.
Congratulations to both Mike and Russ on this accomplishment. With a collective 18 years of commitment to A.D. Marble, we are pleased to have them as part of our team.
(09/30/2016) A.D. Marble headquarters is now located at 2200 Renaissance Blvd, Suite 260, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
(07/18/2016) The Wangum Road Bridge, built in 1903, was a one-lane, 89-foot-long, single-span, Warren truss bridge that carried T.R. 367 (Wangum Road), over Middle Creek. The purpose of the Wagnum Bridge Project is to provide a structure that safely maintains connectivity within the roadway network for travelers along Wangum Road.
The National Register-eligible Wangum Road Bridge was replaced with a new structure on the same alignment. The National Register-eligible Pennsylvania Coal Company Gravity Railroad is also located in the project area. Due to the removal of the bridge, a Section 106 Adverse Effect occurs. As part of Section 106 mitigation measures for the Adverse Effect, A.D. Marble developed an educational component on the area’s transportation history, including the Gravity Railroad, for incorporation into Camp Watonka’s (an adjacent summer camp) summer science program curriculum. In addition, as requested by the Wayne County Commissioners, A.D. Marble prepared an interpretive panel for placement in the vicinity of the new bridge.
(10/10/2015) The two SugarHouse posters—“Precontact Occupation Along the Delaware River” and “From Home Owner to Tenant, From Ship Builder to Laborer: A View from Kensington ca. 1770 to 1990”—represent the culmination of the archaeological investigations undertaken by A.D. Marble & Company on the property subsequently developed for the SugarHouse Casino. As elements of the public outreach program, the posters will be displayed on October 10th at the annual meeting of the Philadelphia Archaeology Forum at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. The meeting will be attended by professional archaeologists and by interested members of the public. The posters will also be presented at a future archaeological meeting at a place and time to be determined.
(07/10/2014) A.D. Marble & Company’s is excited to have been selected as the Friends of the Wissahickon’s (FOW) design studio to develop and install a new trail wayfinding and signage system system throughout Wissahickon Valley Park. This project is a prominent component of FOW’s Sustainable Trails Initiative (STI), which demonstrates a strong commitment to protecting the Park’s natural resources for all park users. The trail signage system will enable FOW to further enhance park users’ experiences while showcasing FOW’s mission and recruiting advocates for the Park’s protection. Very few urban parks can match the high visitation or diversity of park users as Wissahickon Valley Park. Hikers encounter mountain bikers, trail runners, horseback riders, and dog walkers every day along the 50-mile trail network. However, this uniqueness also presents challenges in managing worn trail surfaces throughout the park. A new trail signage system is an important step towards delineating established trails, managing trail traffic and connecting with trail users. A.D. Marble & Company will work closely with FOW and Tahawus Trails LLC, a professional trail building company, to install signage kiosks and trail markers over the next year. For more information, please visit FOW’s website for up-to-date information about this project and FOW’s current news and events. http://www.fow.org/news-events/improved-trail-signage-coming-wissahickon

Water is our most precious natural resource, and it is everyone's responsibility to help protect that resource for today as well as the future. Our country's stormwater drainage system is a pathway directing every drop of water into our natural streams, rivers, and lakes. These resources must be conserved; therefore, we must consider how to safeguard our stormwater system from pollution. We must realize that our every action has an effect on our water.
Applying stormwater management to a linear transportation project has always been complicated. Ms. Woodworth will present the audience with 12 lessons that demonstrate how simple, low-maintenance stormwater management BMPs can be seamlessly integrated into transportation projects, the process of permitting these BMPs, and the methods used ot maintain them.

(9/28/2012) In September 2012, A.D. Marble & Company, along with volunteers from the Valley Forge Chapter of Trout Unlimited (VFTU), coordinated a planting event with Conestoga High School students to install plugs and additional seed throughout a recently designed bioretention swale. This event proved to be an excellent opportunity to teach students about creative stormwater management solutions while connecting them with the schools’ many ‘green’ solutions employed on the campus. Long-term maintenance will be provided by VFTU and the high school to insure the establishment of the native rain garden plant cover.
In 2011, A.D. Marble & Company designed and constructed the bioretention swale to manage stormwater runoff from adjacent ballfields on the Conestoga High School campus with a Growing Greener grant. This project, completed in coordination with VFTU and Conestoga High School, represents an ongoing initiative by VFTU to improve water quality within Crabby Creek; a tributary in the Exceptional Value designated Valley Creek Watershed. The project involved the excavation of compacted gravel, rock, and soil, backfilling with an organic soil mixture, sowing with a rain garden seed mixture, and installation of a precast concrete box inlet to handle overflows associated with large storm events.

(1/5/2012) A.D. Marble & Company Principal Archaeologist Judson Kratzer, presented the topic, Glass House Experimentation in 19th-Century Philadelphia, at the 45th Annual Conference on Historical & Underwater Archaeology in Baltimore, Maryland.
A photograph and synopsis of his topic are provided below:
The early to mid-nineteenth century witnessed a number of horticultural developments focused on scientific study. Individuals were interacting through scientific recording and experimentation to improve agricultural and horticultural pursuits. Notably, the understanding of the construction, operation, and use of glass houses to produce viable crops of grapes and other fruits and vegetables grew in importance in the Delaware Valley. Several individuals within the region made significant contributions to this developing trend of glass house operation and the advancement of horticultural practice. Period garden books for the general population, garden diaries, and construction manuals for horticultural buildings indicate the depth of thought and empirical knowledge emerging from these activities. Physical examples of those efforts within the Philadelphia region have been studied through the archaeological records at Andalusia, Grumblethorpe, and the Highlands. The archaeological research at these properties will highlight glass house usage and the application of scientific principles.
