This is a good example of a state standard plan through girder. It retains lattice railings on its cantilevered sidewalk, which is something not found on all surviving bridges of this type in Pennsylvania.
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The skewed, 2 span, 140'-long thru girder bridge with floorbeams is supported on reinforced concrete abutments and pier. The bridge has a steel grid deck. In 1983 concrete safety shape barriers were added to the inside face of the built-up girders. A sidewalk with lattice railings is cantilevered from the downstream side of the bridge. The bridge was built in 1929 by the state highway department. The altered thru girder bridge is an example of a very common bridge type that was in widespread use from the mid-19th century through the mid- 20th century. Neither the bridge nor its setting or context are historically or technologically significant.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 2 lane road and a sidewalk over a stream in a sparsely developed, forested setting.
