Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 2 span, 131'-long reinforced concrete closed spandrel arch bridge built in 1934 has plain spandrel walls and scoring to accent the arches. The concrete balustrades have paneled posts, and the same panel detail is used for stylized pilasters to define the span lengths. The bridge is late example of a common technology, and it was excluded from the Pine Grove Historic District, which uses the west bank of the stream as the boundary. Neither the bridge nor its setting to the east are historically or technologically significant. The area to the west is in the listed historic district.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 2 lane state highway over a stream in Pine Grove. The bridge is located beyond the boundary of the 1987 National Register-listed Pine Grove Historic District, which has a period of significance extending to 1936. The boundary is the west bank of the stream. This section of SR 895 was improved in the 1930s.
