Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The single-span 54'-long reinforced concrete, closed spandrel arch bridge has paneled parapets and spandrel walls. It is supported on concrete abutments with stone wingwalls surmounted by stone parapets. The bridge was built in 1922 by the county. Concrete arches were a standard bridge type in this region by the mid-1910s. Earlier, longer, and more distinguished examples have been identified. The bridge is not historically significant for its technology, setting, or context.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in an area of open fields and forests in west Radnor Township. The setting has scattered residences dating from the 19th- to the late- 20th centuries. It does not appear to have historic district potential.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
