The historic bridge inventory calls this a box culvert, but in reality it is more like a two span concrete slab bridge, with each span being a lot longer than what most people think of a culvert as looking like. The bridge is noted for its unique railing. The bridge has great historic integrity and is unaltered.
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 52'-long skewed reinforced concrete box culvert built in 1953 has Moderne-styled concrete balustrades and horizontally scored wingwalls. Neither the culvert nor its setting are historically or technologically significant. Box culverts have been used with great frequency since the early 20th century. The culvert is large but otherwise undistinguished.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a two-lane road with shoulders over Conneaut Creek in a sparsely developed, rural area with scattered 20th century residences in the village of Dicksonburg.
