Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This stone arch bridge is built with a slight incline, which is unusual for a stone arch bridge. Although the superstructure is a stone arch, the railings are concrete balustrades. The bridge continues to be a main artery through town, as it carries US-219, which is testimony to the quality craftsmanship in the structure. Marble plaques remain on the bridge as well.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 66'-long stone arch Center Street Bridge built in 1914 has Neo-Classical-style concrete balustrades with vase-shaped balusters. The bridge was built within the ca. 1870-1930 period of significance of the determined eligible historic district, and it is thus a contributing resource.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The Center Street Bridge carries a 2 lane street and 2 sidewalks over Flaugherty Creek in Meyersdale in the Meyersdale Historic District determined eligible by PHMC in 1993.
