Bridge Documentation

Nestled deep within a very scenic area of the Allegheny Plateau is the unusually narrow state standard through truss. The narrow width appears to be due to the lightly traveled rural road it was built to serve.

Discussion of Bridge

The 1938, 2 span, 415'-long, rivet-connected Parker thru truss bridge is supported on a concrete pier and concrete abutments. The polygonal upper chords are built up box sections, the lower chords are channels with battens, and the verticals and diagonals are rolled sections. The bridge is an example of a state highway department standard design rivet-connected truss bridge with rolled verticals and diagonals. The design was used with great frequency beginning in the mid 1920s. The bridge has no innovative or distinctive details. Approximately 75 rivet-connected Parker truss bridges from 1925 to 1957 have been identified. The bridge is not historically or technologically distinguished by its setting or context.

The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a rural, forested mountain setting with scattered 20th-century buildings. At the north end are a post-WW II commercial building and 2 undistinguished, early 20th century vernacular houses. The area does not have historic district potential.
