View The National Register of Historic Places Nomination Form For This Historic Bridge

This bridge is an intact example of a stone arch bridge. The Historic Bridge Inventory lists a ca. 1880 construction date,  but the National Register nomination claims the bridge was built in 1929. Normally more weight should be given to the nomination, and stone arch bridges were sometimes built in these later periods, but they are very rare.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

The bridge carries a 2 lane road and a sidewalk over a stream in a setting of late-19th to ealry 20th century residences on the southwest side of Newport.
