Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 2 span, 112'-long and 27' wide reinforced concrete closed spandrel arch bridge is finished with standard design concrete balustrades. The arch ring is accented by scoring, and the spandrel walls are plain. The bridge is a later and undistinguished example of a common period technology that was used frequently in Schuylkill County. Neither the bridge nor its setting are historically or technologically significant.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 2 lane state highway over a stream in a sparsely developed, forested setting with scattered 19th and late-20th century houses.
