Salford Station Road Bridge (Old)

Map 

Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 3 span, 270'-long built-up thru girder bridge is simply supported on reinforced concrete piers and abutments. Rolled floorbeams and stringers support the reinforced concrete deck. The 1933 bridge is a late example of its type, and is neither historically nor technologically distinguished.
