Hammer Creek Bridge
FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY:
The 1-span, 84'-long, reinforced concrete arch built in 1908 with incised paneled concrete parapets was NR-listed as a result of the previous survey. According to state inspection reports, the left spandrel wall is bulging outward at a rate of about 3" every two years. The spandrel walls have a large crack above the arch ring and the parapets are leaning outward. An approximately 15' section of the parapet was lost and replaced by a metal W-beam guide rail in 1996.
