Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 3-span, 118'-long ,reinforced concrete thru girder bridge built in 1923 is composed of paired girders with an integral slab deck and concrete substructure. The paneled girders also serve as parapets. The girders of the end spans are slightly tapered at the abutment ends. The flared paneled wingwalls are finished with concrete parapets. The underside of the slab deck has been coated in gunite (ca. 1975). The bridge is an example of one of the least successful standardized reinforce concrete bridges types developed during the first decade of the 20th century. At least 65 thru girder bridges from 1906 to 1930 have been identified with more than one-third of the examples in Lancaster County where their use was forwarded by county engineer F. H. Shaw beginning before 1910. The bridge is not historically or technologically distinguished by its setting or context.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a rural area of active farms. The setting does not appear to have historic district potential.
