Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

This bridge was demolished and replaced in Summer 2013!

This bridge is a t-beam that was originally built in 1921. In 1946 it was widened. The technology of the t-beam really would not have changed between these years, and the widening required replacement of the original railings. As such, despite the fact that the bridge has some 1921 beams, the bridge would be better evaluated as a 1946 t-beam bridge. As such, this bridge can be said to be a representative example of a typical 1940s t-beam bridge in Pennsylvania. The bridge displays state standard balustrade railings. Pennsylvania had a number of state standard railing designs. Among the balustrade railings like that seen on this bridge, there seems to have two different railing heights. This bridge displays the taller railing design.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 3 span, 100'-long, T beam bridge, built in 1921 and widened in kind on both sides in 1946, is supported on reinforced concrete piers and abutments with wingwalls. It is finished with standard concrete balustrades on each side of the concrete deck. It is one of over 2351.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries US 6, a 2 lane federal highway, over a stream in the borough of Smethport, a rural town dominated by a mix of 20th century residential and commercial structures. The borough does not appear to have historic district potential.
