Falling Spring Run Bridge

Map 

Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The bridge carries a 2 lane city street of one directional traffic and 2 sidewalks over a stream in Chambersburg. The bridge is in the Chambersburg Historic District with a period of significance from 1775 to 1930.

The single-span, 23'-long, low-rise, reinforced concrete arch bridge was built in 1907 and is recommended as a contributing resource to the Chambersburg Historic District (listed 8/28/82). Although not rated in the district nomination, the bridge dates from the district's period of significance and themes. The bridge has an ornamental iron railing on one side. On the other side of the bridge is a steel stringer supporting a sidewalk and pipe railing that were added prior to 1956.
