Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 1-span, 100'-long, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge built in 1926 has concrete balustrades and paneled closed spandrels. It is supported on concrete abutments with U-shaped wingwalls topped by concrete balustrades. Deck arch bridges began appearing in numbers in Pennsylvania about 1905 and they were ubiquitous by the 1910s. Over 200 examples from before 1916 survive, and 270 reinforced concrete closed spandrel arch bridges predate 1920. This later example has no unusual or noteworthy features. It is not historically or technologically distinguished by its setting or context. It is not located in a potential historic district.
