Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The one-span, 114'-long, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge built in 1949 has concrete abutments with flared wingwalls. The bridge was widened with a cantilevered deck section with safety-shape concrete parapets replacing the previous metal railings in 1995. The altered bridge is a late example of a bridge type/design with no unusual or noteworthy details. It has been common since the early 1910s. with over 650 pre-1957 examples in the state. The bridge is not historically or technologically distinguished by its setting or context.
