This bridge is unusual because its spans have a variety of construction dates, having been salvaged by the railroad from other bridges that were being replaced. The largest span over French Creek dates to 1914. A major
reconstruction of other parts of the bridge took place in 1923. Likely due in part to the salvaged nature of the bridge, many spans are of different lengths. As such, this is an unusual bridge built from parts of other bridges. Thus,
assigning a dominant bridge builder is difficult. However some of the girder spans were originally built by the Phoenix Bridge Company of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania and by the American Bridge Company of New York, New York.
