Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The skewed, 1-span, 43'-long, steel stringer bridge has metal angle and channel railings, concrete deck, and stone abutments with wingwalls. Built in 1933, it has no innovative or distinguishing details and is an example of the most common, mid-20th century bridge type in the state. The bridge was built using a standard design developed by the state highway department in the early 1930s. Neither the bridge nor its setting or context are historically or technologically noteworthy.
