Bridge Documentation

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

This three panel bridge is a relatively late example of its type, but in a county with relatively few pony truss bridges, and also the relatively small cost that would likely be associated with restoring such a small bridge, this bridge should not be cast aside as unworthy of preservation. It remains a good, traditional example of a structure type that was the backbone of small-scale bridge construction in the late 19th Century.

Information and Findings From Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory

Discussion of Bridge

The one span, 46' long and 14' wide, pin-connected Pratt pony truss bridge is supported on 1 stone abutment and 1 concrete abutment with stone masonry caps on the wingwalls. The trusses are traditionally composed with the upper chords being built up box sections, and the verticals are back to back angles with lattice webs. The lower chords and diagonals are eyebars. There are bolted repairs to some of the truss members and the bearings are encased in concrete. The bridge is a late and altered example of a common bridge type. It is neither historically or technologically significant.

Discussion of Surrounding Area

The bridge carries 1 lane of a township road over a stream in a sparsely developed, forested setting.
