This is an attractive bridge that is traditionally composed. It represents quite well the trend in bridge construction in the first decade of the 20th Century, although the fancy plaque mounted on the top chord perhaps harkens back to the earlier truss bridge era.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The skewed, single span, 86'-long riveted Warren pony truss bridge is supported on concrete abutments with stone and concrete wingwalls. The inclined end posts and upper chords are built up box sections. Rolled floorbeams, stringers and riser beams support the open grid steel deck. The flooring system was replaced in 1964. The original lattice railings are fixed to the inner faces of the trusses. The bridge appears to be complete, but it has no innovative or distinctive details, and it is not an early example of its type/design. Neither the bridge nor its setting are historically or technologically significant.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries one lane of an unimproved township road over a stream in an area of mid- to late-20th century houses and active agriculture in a rural county.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
