Chester County has a number of highway through plate girders of similar dimensions remaining. However, this bridge is a younger example of the design. Unlike the earlier examples some of which have stone abutments, this example has more typical concrete abutments, further visual evidence of its later construction date.

The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a rural area with scattered 20th-century residences. The setting does not have historic district potential.
