Bridge Documentation

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

This bridge is a small, but attractive structure. With railings that arch with the actual arch on the bridge itself, it looks like something from out of a cartoon. The bridge also retains a marble plaque set into these railings. It is a small, but attractive and complete structure that should be easy to preserve.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 1919, 36'-long, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge has flared wingwalls, parapets with concrete coping, a concrete belt course, and reinforcement at the base of the arch. The bridge is an example of a common type used with great frequency from the 1910s through the 1950s. Neither the bridge nor its setting or context is technolgically distinguished.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a sparsely developed, rural area near Dilltown. At one end of the bridge is an early 20th century vernacular farmhouse. The other residences in the area appear to be post World War II houses. The area is not a potential historic district.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
