FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 90'-long, pin-connected, metal Pratt thru truss bridge built in 1893 has been converted from a single span to two spans by the addition of a concrete pier underpinning the floorbeam at midspan (1954). The midpanel diagonal eye bars have been strengthened by weld-connected I beams and gusset plates at the panel points. The bridge has double-looped floorbeam hangers in the end panels, a trademark of the fabricator, the Wrought Iron Bridge Co. The bridge is an altered example of a bridge type/design and fabricator that are well represented by other more complete examples in the county. It is not individually distinguished, however, it does have the integrity necessary to contribute to the potential Strickler Mill historic district. It is from the district's period of significance, and it is within the boundaries of the district.
