Historic Significance Rating (HSR)

Bridge Documentation

This bridge has been altered, resulting in a severe loss of historic integrity and significance!

Bridge Status: This bridge was altered in 2010 resulting in a complete loss of historic significance!

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

This bridge was in 2006 a good example of a steel stringer bridge that retained good historic integrity. Its main noteworthy features was its decent length, multi-span configuration, and retention of standard plan ornamental railings. Unfortunately, these railings were replaced, as were a number of the steel stringers on this bridge during a project in 2010. As such, the bridge today, while not a complete replacement, has lost enough original materials and the elements that made it of interest, that it no longer has any historic significance today. The HSR rating on this page reflects the bridge prior to alteration.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The two-span, simply supported, 212'-long, steel stringer bridge, built in 1950, is supported on a concrete substructure and has steel balustrades. It has no innovative or distinguishing details, and is an example of the most common 20th century bridge type in the state. Neither the bridge nor its setting are historically or technologically noteworthy.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a four-lane city street and sidewalks over Neshannock Creek in an area of 20th century development in the borough of New Castle. The area does not appear to have historic district potential.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
