Discussion of Bridge
The 2 span, 43' long and 25' wide slab bridge is supported on a concrete substructure and is finished with paneled parapets. It is an early and complete example of a commonly used state highway department standard design and as such is historically and technologically significant. The state highway department developed standard slab design bridges starting in the early 1910s.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a sparsely developed, rural area with scattered early- and late-20th century residences. The road is between the Schuylkill River and SR 724 and the railroad. The road is a bypassed section of former state highway.
