Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 1935, 35'-long, reinforced concrete rigid frame bridge is finished with plain spandrel walls and steel railings with cast end posts. The bridge is complete, but it has no innovative or distinctive details. It is one of 35 rigid frame bridges in Allegheny County built between 1929 and 1952. Many of the population date to the early 1930s. Neither the bridge nor its setting are historically or technologically significant. It was not built as an original element of the the 1927 McKeesport-Duquesne Bridge (02 2114 0020 0000).

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a lane of one-directional traffic, a sidewalk, and grass strip over the access road to the former B & O and P & LE railroad rights of way on the east side of the Monongahela River at the SE end of the 1927 McKeesport-Duquesne Bridge (02 2114 0020 0000). The ramp carries traffic from the bridge to SR 148 South. The McKeesport approach to the bridge is dominated by modern garages and repair facilities. The setting does not have historic district potential. The railroad tracks are north and west of the bridge.
