The Pennsylvania Turnpike is one of the most historic limited access highways (freeways) in the United States as an early inter-city example of this highway type. The rigid-frame bridges that were constructed for the Pennsylvania Turnpike have historic value as part of the original or early infrastructure of this highway, and also as good examples of a rigid-frame bridges, a structure type that was used frequently in early overpass construction. Unfortunately, original rigid-frame overpasses on the Pennsylvania Turnpike are being replaced and soon all of them may be gone forever. This bridge is a good example of an overpass that carries the Turnpike itself. Despite carrying the heavy Turnpike traffic the overpass retains excellent integrity and even retains original railings.
