Beyer Road Bridge Nockamxion Twp. PA
Historic Bridge Inventory: The 1912, 2-span, 46'-long T beam bridge designed by the county is a complete and early example of its type. T beams, noted for their economy of material and maintenance, were first used in the state about 1905, and they became one of the most common pre-1960 bridge types in the state. This is the oldest example in the county, and it is among the most complete early examples in the state. It is historically and technologically significant based on its date and completeness. It was designed and built while A. Oscar Martin was county engineer.
The bridge carries a 2 lane road over a stream in a sparsely developed, forested setting with modern houses, which are adjacent to three quadrants of the bridge. The area does not have historic district potential. It is west of the Ridge Valley Historic District.
