Description 

FROM PA HISTORIC BRIDGE DATA: The 2 span, 93'-long steel stringer bridge has W-beam guiderails, concrete deck, and stone pier and abutments with concrete caps. Originally constructed in 1932, the bridge was built with angle and channel railings and an open steel grid deck. In 1982, the bridge was altered by the addition of a concrete deck, removal of the original railings, and welding of cover plates to the beams. The bridge lacks integrity and is an example of the most common mid-20th century bridge type in the state.
