Description 

National Register of Historic Places NRIS Number: 88000738

Significance: The bridge is an early example of a reinforced concrete open-spandrel arch bridge, noteworthy for its modern method of construction, and unusual shape and design. The two ribs of the arch and the two small posts that transfer the weight of the deck to the ribs are very slender appearing to test the limits of building in this medium. Also significant is the elegant elliptical shape of the arch and the decorative concrete parapet, with a light, star-shaped design, rather decorative for a bridge of such a small size, and unique among concrete bridges of a similar dated in Pennsylvania.
