This is a traditional Warren pony truss. It features an approach span that is roughly 39 feet in length. The railings on the truss bridge are original lattice, but the railings on the approach span are different. It is possible that the approach span is newer than the truss span. The truss span has been retrofitted with a support at mid-span which was placed to reduce the work the truss itself has to do.
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The two span, 95'-long bridge, built in 1915, consists of a 58'-long, eight panel, riveted, Warren with verticals pony truss and a 37'-long steel stringer span. It is supported on a concrete pier and concrete abutments with flared wingwalls. The bridge, an undistinguished example of a common technology, has no innovative or distinctive details. Riveted Warren truss bridges have been used with great frequency since 1890s. The bridge is neither historically nor technologically significant.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries 1 lane of a 2 lane road over a stream in a wooded setting with scattered, predominantly late-20th century residences, including houses at the southwest and northeast quadrants. The area does not have the architectural significance of a potential historic district.
