Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This bridge is one of two concrete arch bridges on PA-21 in Greene County near Waynesburg documented by HistoricBridges.org that had a distinctive railing design that was highly attractive. The other one is here. This bridge however lost its original railing on one side, perhaps to a vehicular crash, and it is replaced on one side with ugly modern New Jersey barrier.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 1927, 126'-long, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge is finished with plain spandrel walls. The original custom-design balustrade with an open tear drop patten framing a diamond-shaped panel remains on the south side, but has been lost and replaced with a plain concrete barrier on the other. The south spandrel wall has been shotcreted. The altered bridge is not historically or technologically significant. Its technology was common by 1915.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a rural area of active farms west of Waynesburg. The agricultural area, which has some late-19th century farmsteads, is being redeveloped with modern buildings. A modern gas station is beyond one quadrant. The area does not have historic district potential.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
