Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This is an unaltered example of a closed spandrel concrete arch bridge. It retains original concrete panel railings and bronze plaque. The engineering firm, Chaney Engineering Company, is likely related to another engineer found on an area bridge, Chaney and Armstrong.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The one span, 103'-long and 27' wide reinforced concrete deck arch bridge was built in 1925 has concrete parapets with incised panels and articulated posts. The bridge appears to be complete, but it is an example of what by 1910 was common technology. Neither the bridge nor its setting are historically or technologically significant.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a two-lane road over a stream in a sparsely developed, rural setting with woods, farms, and modern housing.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
