Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 2-span, 78'-long, 28'-wide stone arch bridge is laid up in random coursed ashlar. It has matched ring stones. The parapets finished with stones set in a crenellated pattern date from 1941 when the bridge was widened with a reinforced concrete arch extension to the downstream side. The stone arch intrados has been shotcreted. The bridge is an altered example of a type and design that is common in the county, and it is not historically or technologically significant.
