Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory
Discussion of Bridge
The 2 span, 126'-long steel stringer bridge built in 1955 is supported on a concrete substructure and has standard 1950s metal railings. The bridge has an open grid steel deck. It has no innovative or distinguishing details and is a late example of the most common, mid-20th century bridge type in the state. The bridge is not technologically noteworthy. It is one of many pre-1956 steel stringer bridges in Pennsylvania. The setting does not appear to be historically significant.
Discussion of Surrounding Area
The bridge carries a 2 lane state highway over a stream in a predominantly wooded area with sparse development. The area does not appear to have historic district potential.
