This bridge is an unaltered example of a concrete t-beam bridge. It retains standard plan railings and a bronze builder plaque. The stone abutments of a previous bridge appear to be hiding behind the concrete abutments, and remain exposed at the end of the wingwalls.
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 1920, skewed, single span T beam bridge with paneled parapets is supported on concrete abutments with wingwalls. There is also remnants of ashlar abutments from a previous structure. 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. It has no innovative or distinguishing details. It is one of over 2351.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries 1 lane of an unimproved township road over a stream in a rural area of active farms. East of the bridge is an wood frame farmhouse with an asymmetrical facade and numerous outbuildings and garage-type buildings. The area of predominantly post-World War II residences does not appear to have historic district potential.
