Actually, I can imagine this, especially if the assessment was done several years ago. In Kansas, we lost a lot of outstanding bridges that were not NRHP eligible, but those surveys were done in the early 1980s, when historic bridges were far more common. Those same bridges would undoubtedly qualify today. This fact is reflected in NBI listings that now qualify many remaining bridges as eligible, even though they generated little interest in the early 1980s.

Perhaps PennDot's findings are just way out of date.

To make it worse, this beautiful, largely unaltered, multi-span riveted thru truss was, under PennDOT's Historic Bridge Inventory "Not Eligible" for the National Register of Historic Places, a completely unreasonable assessment in my opinion. Can you imagine a bridge such as this being considered NOT HISTORIC in today's world? Only in Pennsylvania.
