This bridge is one of several attractive examples of an unusual stone arch design that actually includes a brick arch ring. These bridges were designed by county engineer Nathan R. Rambo. The bridge today remains in decent condition. However, the insensitive addition of an asphalt overlay without regard to the location of the marble plaque has buried part of the plaque and covered part of the decorative brick frame that surrounds the plaque.
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 2-span brick arch bridge with stone spandrel walls and parapets is listed in the National Register. The bridge was built in 1903 by P. J. McCormick. Repairs were made to the pier including repointing and placement of concrete scour protection in 1992. A section of the parapets was repointed and the coping reset in 1996.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a sparsely developed, rural area with scattered 19th- and 20th-century residences. A late-19th-century farm complex is located at the bridge's northwest quadrant.
