Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 1916, single span, 49'-long, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge has flat paneled concrete parapets with paneled posts and incised spandrels. Built for the township, the bridge is an example of a bridge type and design that was common by 1916. It has no innovative or distinctive details. Nor is the builder, the Farris Engineering Company, noteworthy. The prolific firm was known for standard design reinforced concrete and steel bridges. Reinforced concrete deck arch bridges were introduced into the region during the first decade of the 20th century. Thirty-six examples remain, with the oldest dating to 1906. Earlier examples better illustrate the development and significance of the technology.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in the village of Helen's Mills. To the south are an undistinguished early 20th century residence with modern siding and a late 1970s house with a large yard. To the west is a wooded lot and a trailer home. The setting does not have the cohesiveness or integrity of a potential historic district.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
