Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 1921, single span, 44'-long, reinforced concrete thru girder bridge is supported on concrete abutments with flared wingwalls. The parapets/girders have recessed panels on the exterior faces. The bridge is a late, undistinguished example of its technology, and it has no innovative or distinctive details. Seven reinforced concrete thru girder bridges dating from 1914 to 1921 remain in the district. Earlier examples best represent the importance and contribution of the technology in the improvement of local roads. This bridge is neither historically nor technologically significant.
