Bridge Documentation

This King Bridge Company through truss was relocated from 7th Street to 4th Street where it replaced a less significant pony truss and was rehabilitated for pedestrians. L.C. Whitford of Wellsville, N.Y. was responsible for the relocation. The bridge's major 1983 alteration of a load-bearing arch which had been added long ago was not removed during relocation.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The one-span, 74'-long, steel thru arch bridge was built in 1983 and fitted into the previous 1883 pin-connected Pratt thru truss bridge, fabricated by the King Iron Bridge Company. The Pratt trusses now merely serve as ornaments that are attached to a modern steel arch superstructure. They have lost their integrity of original design and function. The trusses have no details or features that are not represented by more complete and unaltered examples of similar type and design by the same prolific fabricator. According to PADOT Dist. 2-0, the bridge has been determined eligible by PHMC as a result of Sec. 106 consultation (Note of 5/99).

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The single lane bridge carries a residential street over the Allegheny River in the borough of Coudersport. The bridge is located in an area with a mix of late-19th to late-20th-century residences. The river is channelized through this area with concrete slopewalls. The setting does not have the cohesiveness or integrity of a potential historic district and it was excluded from the boundaries of the Coudersport Historic District, which is located more than two blocks to the east.
