This is a good example of a concrete arch bridge, with the only alteration being the addition of Armco guardrail. The original state standard balustrade railings remain behind the additions. This is one of two similar bridges not very far from each other on this road.
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 1930, reinforced concrete, closed spandrel deck arch bridge has concrete balustrades and wingwalls. The reinforced concrete deck arch bridge gained popularity quickly in the 1900s and was used with great frequency. The bridge is an example of a common type with no distinctive or innovative details. Neither the bridge nor its setting and context are historically or technologically noteworthy. Earlier and longer examples of the same design are common throughout the state.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 2 lane road and 2 sidewalks on a horizontal curve over a stream in a stand of trees in a sparsely developed, rural area with scattered 20th century residences.
