A blatant lack of maintenance and care for this bridge has led to severe spalling on the arches of this bridge. Whether a bridge is historic or not, a bridge should be maintained to prevent costly demolition and replacement. A bridge like this one is attractive and has historic value, and if it has been properly maintained, it would have been easy to keep it both a functional structure and a beautiful historic crossing. Why should the citizens of Pennsylvania pay for PennDOT's lack of maintenance, not only in tax dollars, but in loss of historic resources as well?!
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 155'-long, 2 span, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge with flat paneled parapets is supported on concrete abutments with wingwalls and a concrete pier with scour protection. The bridge, which has no innovative or distinctive details, is an example of what by 1910 was common technology. Neither it nor its setting are historically or technologically significant.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream at Dilltown, a late 19th/early 20th century coal mining community. The area adjacent to the bridge is dominated by post-World War II structures, and it does not have historic district potential.
