The Allegheny River was once one of the most beautiful rivers in the country for bridge lovers, with numerous amazing historic bridges crossing the largely rural and scenic river, a contrast to the more industrialized Monongahela and Ohio Rivers. Thanks to PennDOT, nearly all of these beautiful historic bridges have been destroyed. This bridge, however is a railroad bridge and therefore not owned by PennDOT, something to be grateful for. This bridge and setting still captures the beautiful union of natural scenery with a gorgeous bridge that has stood for over a century. At the time of documentation, a rockslide had deposited boulders onto the approaching railroad. It is not known if there are plans to reopen the railroad line.
