Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The single span, 24'-long, stone arch bridge built in 1910 has been widened with steel stringer sections on each side to carry the sidewalks (ca. 1950). W-beam guide rails (ca. 1980) line the sidewalks and curblines replacing earlier parapets or railings. The bridge has lost integrity of original design. The traditional stone arch bridge technology has been used in Pennsylvania since the colonial period with over 350 examples. This late, short, and altered example is not historically or technologically distinguished by its setting or context. It is not located in a potential historic district.
