Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The single span, 66'-long, deck arch bridge built in 1919 has paneled spandrel walls and parapets. It is supported on concrete abutments with flared wingwalls. The reinforced concrete arch bridge technology was introduced in Pennsylvania about 1900, and by 1910 it had become ubiquitous. It was popular with many county and city engineers. More than 200 examples from before 1916 have been identified with more than 55 from before 1910. This bridge is not an early example in the county or region, and it has no unusual or noteworthy details. It is not historically or technologically distinguished by its setting or context.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The single lane bridge carries an unimproved road over a stream in a sparsely developed, rural area with scattered late 20th century residences. A modern house is at the southeast quadrant. The setting does not have the cohesiveness or integrity of a historic district.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
