Bridge Documentation

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

This attractive bridge is built to what appears to have been a standard plan in West Virginia. A relatively narrow structure for its construction date, this bridge retains good historic integrity. It is however showing signs of disrepair in several locations, but perhaps due to the lightly traveled road, the bridge is not showing many signs of severe spalling. As a two-span structure with good integrity, it is a noteworthy bridge in its class and is deserving of restoration.
