Amtrak Railroad Bridge

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY:
The closed bridge carries a rural road over 2 electrified tracks of Amtrak in a sparsely developed, forested setting. The rail line is the former Pennsylvania RR Main Line, which has been identified as a historic line by PHMC.
The 5 span, 95'-long bridge built in 1901 is composed of a single steel thru girder span over the tracks and four timber stringer approach spans. The steel span is supported on steel bents with stone pedestals. The abutments are stone and the remaining bents are timber. The timber deck is enclosed by corrugated panels above the girders and timber railings on the timber spans. The bridge is not eligible by SHPO Finding, 2/27/95.
