Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 50'-long, closed spandrel reinforced concrete elliptical deck arch bridge, built in 1930, has paneled concrete parapets. The reinforced concrete deck arch gained popularity quickly in the 1900s and was used with great frequency in Pennsylvania on local and county roads in the 1910s. There are better, and earlier, examples in the survey population. Neither the bridge nor its setting are historically or technologically significant.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries an abandoned single-lane road owned by Medusa Cement Company over a two-lane road.
