This bridge is much more than is currently described here. Sealed within this bridge is one of only two cast iron deck arch bridges in the United States (the other of course is Dunlaps Creek Bridge in Brownsville, PA). The Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge is unique, as the cast iron tubular arches of this bridge were designed to carry water within themselves. In other words, the arch ribs of the bridge are water mains. According to HAER they still carry water, encased within the 1915 arch bridge. They are visible both in HAER documentation and in Google Street View.
