Description 

Rehab in 2009 included repairs to the bulging bridge walls and the arch barrels in each span, reconstruction of the bridge approaches, and installation of a waterproof membrane and scour protection. SOURCE PENNDOT Press Release 9/11/2009.

I also believe the bridge had work done in 1953 as JR Zeek's initials and the year are etched in the stone (included in one of my photos).

"Old Bridges of Franklin County" by Frederick Fleming Unger mentions length as 154 feet.
