Bridge Documentation

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

This small bridge is unusual among concrete arch bridges in Pennsylvania. It has metal pipe railings where most small arch bridges in Pennsylvania have concrete railings. More notably, the bridge is also of ribbed design, with one rib on each side of the bridge. Ribbed arch bridges are uncommon in Pennsylvania.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The 1919, skewed, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge has 2 rail high welded pipe railings with concrete end posts. The bridge has concrete wingwalls and at the bridge's southeast quandrant is a concrete retaining wall. The bridge is an example of a common type used with great frequency since the early 20th century, with no innovative or distinguishing details. Earlier, more signficant examples of the bridge type can be found in the survey population.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries 1 lane of a township road over a stream in a rural area of active farms just east of the intersection of TR 489 and SR 218. There are a number of farmsteads visible in the area, including one late 19th century brick farmhouse. The area does not appear to have rural historic district potential.

Bridge Considered Historic By Survey: No
