Description 

3 arch spans: 25', 45', 25'

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 3-span, ribbed, closed spandrel, reinforced concrete arch bridge is listed in the National Register. There has been no change in the bridge's status since the previous survey. The arch ribs have spalls with exposed rebars. The parapets have numerous concrete patches, most of which appear to predate the previous survey.
