From Historic Bridge Inventory
The 1891, pin connected, single span, 102'-long, Pratt thru truss bridge is supported on ashlar abutments with flared wingwalls. The six panel trusses have distinctive hip verticals consisting of an eye bar upper portions and metal channels with laced webs for the lower parts. The bridge is among the earliest of six remaining pin connected truss bridges in Cambria County. Only 11 3022 0010 0000, a National Register-listed Pennsylvania thru truss bridge erected in 1890, is older. The bridge is historically and technologically significant as a complete example of a pin connected truss bridge with distinctive design elements.
