Description 

FROM PA BRIDGE DATA: The 3-span, 84'-long stone arch bridge was surveyed as part of the 1982 historic bridge survey and is listed in the National Register. The bridge was built in 1905 by J. A. Morris and designed by noted architect Theophilus P. Chandler. The rusticated stone arch bridge consists of one longer center span flanked by two shorter spans. The buttressed center-span piers are capped by circular-plan pedestrian refuges. An approximately 30'-long section of stone parapet at the northwest wingwall has been lost and replaced by a horizontally scored concrete parapet. The pedestrian refuge at the center span's southwest corner has been removed (ca. 1990)
