Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 1923, single span, 50'-long, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge has concrete abutments and arched, concrete flat paneled parapets. The arch ring serves as the roadway deck, giving it a vertical profile. The bridge is an example of a common technology used with great frequency since the early 20th century. It has no innovative details. The bridge is one of nine reinforced concrete deck arch bridges in the county with the earliest dating to 1913. Other examples better represent the technology in the county context, such as 31 7225 0370 3014, a National Register-listed, 2 span, 117'-long bridge erected in 1917.
