View Information About HSR Ratings
This bridge is an early surviving small-scale steel stringer bridge that retains original v-laced railings even if they have been remounted to the bridge.
Given that this bridge has unusual v-laced railings, and that a number of truss bridges built in this county by Nelson and Buchanan have this same railing, it is possible that Nelson and Buchanan may have built this structure as well.
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The single-span, 32'-long and 12' wide steel stringer bridge dated 1904 is supported on ashlar abutments. The fascia beams are channels. Welded X lateral bracing was added at an unknown date. The laced railings are connected by welding, which is not the original means or attachment. The bridge has been rebuilt, and it is not a historically or technologically significant example of its type. More complete stringer bridges represent the significance of the introduction of the technology, which went on to dominate the 20th century.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries one lane of an unimproved road over a stream in a sparsely developed, rural area with scattered 20th century residences, including modern ones.
