This bridge is an outstanding example of a bridge built by the Pittsburgh Bridge Company. It is one of the few known remaining multi-span examples of this builder's work left in Pennsylvania. An internet source indicates that this bridge's spans were relocated to this site after being salvaged from a three span bridge. The National Bridge Inventory listed a 1911 construction date for the bridge, suggesting that this is the year in which the spans were relocated here. The bridge today retains excellent historic integrity. The bridge however has a problem that has caused the top chord and bottom chord to of one span to buckle or bend sharply at one point, and the bridge is now closed to traffic. This problem is not a barrier to restoring the truss spans; repairing such a bend would be simple and routine as part of typical restoration work.
