Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 1935, skewed, single span, built up thru girder bridge is supported on ashlar abutments with wingwalls that date from an earlier bridge. The substructure has been reinforced and also raised with concrete. The girder bridge has steel I beam floorbeams and a concrete deck. The sidewalk is cantilevered off the bridge's south side using steel brackets. The lattice railing is original. The bridge is an example of a common type with no innovative or distinguishing detail. Thru girder bridges were first developed by the railroad industry in the 1850s, and they were used on vehicular roadways beginning in the late 19th century. Neither the bridge nor its setting and context are historically or technologically noteworthy.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a 2 lane and 1 sidewalk road over a stream in a rural area of active farms.
