Pine Hill Road Bridge

Map 

Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 2-span stone arch bridge dates in style from ca. 1900. The bridge lacks historic integrity due to numerous alterations including removal of original stone parapets and replacement with concrete curbs and pipe railings (ca. 1950), significant amounts of mortar patching the spandrel walls, bracing of the upstream headwall of the east arch withh a steel plate, and addition of concrete scour protections to the stone abutments and pier. The spandrel walls and headwalls are bulging outward. More complete examples of the traditional stone arch technology are not uncommon in the county and region. The bridge is not distinguished by its setting or context.
