This historic bridge was demolished and replaced by PennDOT in 2010!

This small truss bridge is a good example of one of the many reasons why truss bridges are important to preserve. Brush Creek is a very small creek that might pass un-noticed to people traveling down the road. But thanks to the trusses of this bridge, people can immediately recognize that they are crossing something. The bridge also simply adds a bit a variety to an otherwise uneventful drive.

This bridge is unusual because it has large concrete panels on the approach. The bridge is unfortunately not in the best of condition. In particular, the bottom chord appeared to be in very bad shape, with its v-lacing all but rusted away due to extensive section loss.

Today, this attractive historic bridge is nothing more than an organized arrangement of colored pixels that you see on your screen when you look at the photo above.

 

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The single-span, 78'-long and 22' wide, riveted Warren with verticals pony truss bridge was built in 1929 as a replacement for an 1871 bridge. The bridge is supported on concrete abutments with wingwalls, and the trusses are traditionally composed. It has no innovative or distinctive details. It is a late example of a type and design that was common by 1910 throughout the state. Neither the bridge nor its setting is historically or technologically significant. It is one of 18 remaining truss bridges built between 1878 and 1939 in Beaver County.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a two-lane road over a stream in a sparsely developed, rural area with scattered 20th century houses and a local greenspace park beyond the northeast quadrant.
