Muddy Creek Road Bridge

Map 

Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The single span, 66'-long, deck arch bridge built in 1919 has paneled spandrel walls and parapets. It is supported on concrete abutments with flared wingwalls. The reinforced concrete arch bridge technology was introduced in Pennsylvania about 1900, and by 1910 it had become ubiquitous. It was popular with many county and city engineers. More than 200 examples from before 1916 have been identified with more than 55 from before 1910. This bridge is not an early example in the county or region, and it has no unusual or noteworthy details. It is not historically or technologically distinguished by its setting or context.
