FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY:
"The 1891, two span, 40'-long, stone arch bridge has random coursed spandrels and ashlar voussoirs. The bridge has lost integrity and is not technologically significant due to extensive alterations in 1984, including the removal of the parapets to the level of the extrados and their replacement with beam guiderails set in brush curbs, the unsympathetic repointing of the stones, and the placement of toe walls at the substructure. Stone arch bridges are well represented in western Pennsylvania; approximately 55 examples remain. More complete examples better represent the technology."
