This is a nice looking concrete arch bridge. It has a fairly shallow arch to it (in other words, the rise of the bridge is small) for its length giving it a slender, graceful appearance. The bridge does suffer from some spalling on the arch. The bridge does retain good historic integrity however with no major alterations.
Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 1921, reinforced concrete, elliptical deck arch bridge has incised flat paneled parapets that flare at the bridge approach. A cattle guard has been bolted to the bridge's east elevation. The bridge is an example of a common type used with great frequency by the state highway department since the early 20th century. It has no innovative or distinguishing details. Neither the bridge nor its setting and context are historically or technologically noteworthy. Earlier and longer examples are common throughout the state.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 1 lane road over a stream in a rural area of active farms.
