Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 2 span, 146'-long reinforced concrete deck arch bridge is finished with paneled concrete
parapets with center-of-span balustrade panels. Whalers have been added to the structure to
stabilize the spandrel walls. There are also shotcrete repairs. The bridge is similar to 53
0895 0390 0408 which is downstream. Both are county bridges. Neither the bridge nor its
setting are historically or technologically significant. Deck arch bridges with greater than 100'
span lengths were common by 1912.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a 2 lane road with one sidewalk over the Schuylkill River in the borough of
Landingville, which is dominated by extensively altered buildings. To the south of the bridge
is a modern house and a ball field. The north side is wooded. The area does not have
historic district potential.
