Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The single-span, 54'-long, steel stringer bridge, built in 1934, is supported on concrete capped ashlar abutments with wingwalls. Its timber deck was replaced in 1950 when a reinforced concrete deck was installed. It has steel railings and curbs. It has no innovative or distinguishing details, and is an example of the most common 20th century bridge type in the state. Neither the bridge nor its setting are historically or technologically noteworthy.
