Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 1922, two span, 225'-long, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge is supported on concrete abutments and a spalling concrete pier. The Neo-Classical-style concrete balustrades have an exposed aggregate finish. The bridge is an example of a common type and design that was used with great frequency since the first decade of the 20th century. It has no innovative details. Reinforced concrete deck arch bridges are well-represented in the district. A total of 64 remain, including 48 built prior to 1920. Earlier, more complete examples better represent the technology (e.g., 07 7403 8012 3083).

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries 3 lanes of traffic and 2 sidewalks over a river in a transition area between downtown and the Kernville section of Johnstown. The bridge is not within the Downtown Johnstown Historic District. The setting is characterized by post-WW II commercial development and loss due to demolition of residential structures. It does not have historic district potential.
