Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The single-span, 79'-long, steel, built-up riveted through girder bridge, built in 1937, is supported on horizontally scored concrete abutments with wingwalls. The floorbeams are encased in concrete. A sidewalk with a lattice railing is cantilevered from one side of the bridge. Neither the bridge nor its setting are historically or technologically noteworthy.
