This bridge is not particularly significant but it is attractive with its concrete balustrade-like railings (a standard design in Pennsylvania) and its lined abutments. It is of interest as an example of a grade separation for two two-lane roads, something that occasionally occurs in Pennsylvania, in some cases perhaps the result of accommodating the uneven terrain. An access road near the bridge provides access between the two roads.
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 31'-long T beam bridge built in 1941 is supported on horizontally scored reinforced concrete abutments with wingwalls. It is finished with standard concrete balustrades, which are faced with metal guiderails. It is one of over 2351 pre-1956 T beam bridges in the state. Neither the bridge nor its setting are historically or technologically significant. T beam bridges were used in Pennsylvania with great frequency since the late 1910s.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a 2 lane state highway in a rural area of active farms and scattered residences.
