Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The superstructure is modern. Based on similarities with 49 7212 0802 0050 that is dated 1983, the steel thru arch bridge placed around a ca. 1900 pin connected pony truss bridge is dated to ca. 1985. There are several other 1980s examples of this approach to retaining truss bridges in the northern and western parts of the state. New floorbeams were added when the steel arch was placed. The steel grid deck is also modern.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a township road over a stream in the settlement of Roaring Branch. The old buildings are highly altered, and the setting does not have the significance or integrity of a historic district.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No


This bridge is tagged with the following special condition(s): Trusses Converted To Decorative
