Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 2-span, 64'-long steel stringer bridge was built in 1950. It has a metal channel and angle railings, concrete deck, and concrete abutments and piers. The bridge is a late and undistinguished example of the standard steel stringer bridge developed by the state highway department for use on rural roads in the early 1930s. Although located in a potential historic district composed of 19th and early 20th century resources, the bridge was built outside the period of significance of the district and is thus evaluated as noncontributing.
