FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The single span, 28'-long stone arch bridge built in 1918 has rusticated voussoirs and fieldstone spandrel walls and parapets. The parapets have replacement concrete coping, the intrados has been shotcreted, concrete scour protection has been added, and the stonework has grapevine repointing (1983). The bridge is a short, late and altered example of the traditional stone arch bridge technology that has been in use in the state since the colonial period. Over 350 examples have been identified statewide with approximately two-thirds dating to before 1900. More complete and distinguished examples in the county are BMS Nos. 66 7220 974 3202 & 66 4016 0020 2668. The bridge is not historically or technologically significant for its setting or context.
