Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The single span, 70'-long, reinforced concrete deck arch bridge built in 1921 has standard paneled parapets and concrete abutments with flared wingwalls. The bridge is a design of the state highway department, and this road is a section of state highway (LR 129) that has been bypassed. The reinforced concrete deck arch bridge type/design was developed in the last decade of the 19th century and introduced in Pennsylvania in numbers during the first decade of the 20th century. It is common in the state with over 270 pre-1920 examples. This later example has no unusual or noteworthy features of details. It is not historically or technologically distiguished by its setting or context. It is not located in a potential historic district.
