Located in a county and region with few surviving historic truss bridges, this bridge should perhaps get more recognition than it has in the past. The bridge appears to have once had a top chord mounted plaque. Companies that were prolific in this region that did this included Groton Bridge Company, Owego Bridge Company, Havena Bridge Company, and Climax Bridge Company.
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The one span, 42' long and 14' wide, riveted, Warren with verticals pony truss bridge was built in 1909. The verticals, diagonals, and lower chords are composed of angles with battens. The upper chords and inclined end posts are built up box sections. There are lattice railings inside the truss lines. The bridge is complete, but it does not have any innovative or distinctive details, and it is not an early example of its type and design. The bridge is not historically or technologically significant.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries one lane of a township road over a stream in a rural area of active farms and forests. The setting does not appear to have historic district potential. The building stock consists of primarily late-19th and early-20th century farm houses.
