This bridge was built by the Lehigh Valley Railroad to cross a small stream known as Spring Creek. It was abandoned in 1968, but the bridge was left in place. The bridge is unusual in that it is curved and ballasted. The bridge is on private property, and the photos were taken with permission of both the land-owner and the tenant.
