Bridge Documentation

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

This bridge is a railroad overpass that consists of riveted, built-up longitudinal beams. The bridge has some subtle architectural details that set it a few steps ahead of the average railroad overpass from this period in history. Although it has spalled severely, the edge of the concrete deck has a pattern of inset rectangular panels. The bridge's pipe railings have decorative balls at the ends although some of the balls have gone missing. The railings have interesting cast posts as well. Finally, the abutments have a simple pattern of horizontal lines.

The bridge was built by McClintic-Marshall Company of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The company was noted for building some of the largest bridges in the country, but this bridge shows the company also constructed small bridges as well.

The tracks are former New York Central Fall Brook Line, later the Conrail Corning Secondary. Today the bridge and tracks are owned by Norfolk Southern and lately has not been in use. Although very faded, the name New York Central can still be seen as it was painted on the bridge many years ago.
