Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The ca. 1925, single span T beam bridge with paneled parapets is supported on concrete abutments with wingwalls. The bridge is moderately spalling at the fascia beams, where the steel reinforcement is exposed. The bridge is an example of a very common bridge type that was used with great frequency beginning in the 1910s and continuing through the 1950s.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a sparsely developed, forested setting on a bypassed section of SR 21.
