This bridge is noteworthy as a pin-connected Pennsylvania truss. However, it is particularly unusual because it was built by the Berlin Iron Bridge Company. Most surviving pin-connected truss bridges built by this company are the company's patented lenticular truss design, so this bridge stands out as unusual among surviving examples of the company's work. Aside from the variance in the truss design, the other typical Berlin Iron Bridge Company details are present including the design of ornamental railings, portal cresting, and builder plaque. These items remain intact on the bridge today.

The bridge has been altered by the addition of a load-bearing structural arch. This type of alteration significantly reduces the historic integrity of the bridge, but is a good compromise preservation solution for situations where heavy loads need to be able to cross the historic bridge. The sidewalk appears to have been made narrower, although the original dimensions of the sidewalk cantilevers were retained.


This bridge is tagged with the following special condition(s): Trusses Converted To Decorative
