Sideling Hill Creek Bridge

Map 

Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 1916, single span, 72'-long, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge has concrete abutments with flared wingwalls. It is finished with raised panel parapets. It was built to a design patented by Daniel Luten, an influential early 20th century engineer and promotor of reinforced concrete arch bridges. The bridge is a late example of a Luten design, built at a time when many of his patents were being voided and reinforced concrete arch bridges were common. Early and complete examples better represent the contribution made by Luten in the development of reinforced concrete bridge technology. The bridge is neither historically nor technologically significant.
