This bridge is one of the original Pennsylvania Turnpike overpasses. It displays the concrete rigid-frame design, which was one of the popular bridge types used in the original Turnpike. The original overpasses are disappearing as they are slowly all being demolished and replaced as the Turnpike is widened. This one is noted for its substantial grade, which is uncommon among the concrete rigid-frame bridges. It also has good historic integrity with the loss of the original railings on the span being the only major alteration. Original abutment railings do remain.
Only a few overview photos taken with a GoPro camera while driving on the Turnpike are available for this bridge.
This historic bridge has been demolished. This map is shown for reference purposes only.
