PRR - Shenango River Bridge
The Wheatland Bridge formerly carried the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) over the Shenango River near Wheatland, Pennsylvania. The Pratt through truss bridge was located on the PRR's Erie & Pittsburgh Division mainline.
The original bridge over the Shenango River near Wheatland was a circa 1864 wooden crossing that was replaced by a new steel bridge in November 1899.
The bridge was placed out of service in 1982.
