This historic bridge was demolished sometime between 2010 and 2012!

This attractive bridge is a four panel half-hip Pratt pony truss with pinned connections. The iron/steel materials on the bridge came from both Carnegie and Jones and Laughlin mills. The bridge retains decent sized lattice railings. There is lattice on the vertical members. There have been some repairs made to the bridge, but these repairs do not affect the overall appearance or design of the bridge, and the majority of original materials remain on the bridge. As such, the alterations on this bridge do not reduce the value of this bridge as both an aesthetic and historic structure. The Historic Bridge's rapidly aging statement that implies that Crawford County has a large population of historic truss bridges is rapidly becoming outdated given rates of demolition, both planned and completed.

David Stayduhar reported that Eddie Road was named for his grandfather Edward D. Stayduhar.

Sometime between 2010 and 2012 this historic bridge was demolished. As of 2013 no replacement bridge has been built.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The one span, pin connected, 63'-long, Pratt pony truss bridge built in 1895 is supported on ashlar abutments with flared wingwalls. It is an altered example of the standardized design that is common in the county. New eyes were welded onto the lower chord eye bars, and some of the rivets have been replaced by modern bolts at an unspecified date. More complete and distinguished examples represent the significance and development of the technology, especially in Crawford County with its many unaltered metal truss bridges. Neither the bridge nor its setting are historically or technologically significant.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries 1 lane of road over a stream in a rural area of farms and woods. The undistinguished, early and mid 20th century farm houses do not have historic district potential.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
