Bridge Documentation

This bridge is an impressive example of a traditionally composed riveted Pennsylvania through truss. The bridge was altered in 1953 when the adjacent railway bridge was built so that the two bridges could exist beside each other. The bridge is a one-lane bridge, and given the long, curved design of the bridge this is unusual. However despite this, the bridge remains a safe and functional crossing with traffic signals controlling the flow of traffic on the one-lane structure.
