Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 165'-long and 51'-wide, 4 span bridge is composed of 3, 45' long built-up deck girder spans and a 28' elliptical-shaped, reinforced concrete deck arch span that is finished with ashlar spandrel walls. The substructure is composed of both stone and concrete piers and abutments. Metal lattice railings finish the bridge, which is not an early example of girder technology. The 28' long reinforced concrete arch span is not among the earliest in the state. The bridge is neither historically or technologically significant.
