Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 1-span, 100'-long, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge built in 1926 has concrete balustrades and paneled closed spandrels. It is supported on concrete abutments with Ushaped wingwalls topped by concrete balustrades. Deck arch bridges began appearing in numbers in Pennsylvania about 1905 and they were ubiquitous by the 1910s. Over 200 examples from before 1916 survive, and 270 reinforced concrete closed spandrel arch bridges predate 1920. This later example has no unusual or noteworthy features. It is not historically or technologically distinguished by its setting or context. It is not located in a potential historic district.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a rural area of active farms and scattered 19th to late 20th century residences and businesses. At the western quadrants are a field, a stone foundation of a former mill, and a vernacular stone house. At the eastern quadrants are a farm complex, a mid 19th century brick vernacular house, and a modern heating oil business. The setting does not have the over all cohesiveness or integrity of a historic district.
