Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 2 span, 107'-long prestressed concrete adjacent box beam bridge is supported by a reinforced concrete substructure. Standard 1950s metal railings are fixed to each face of the bridge. The bridge is not an early example of its type, using technology first used around 1950, but is a representative example of the type which was used extensively in 1955 and 1956. Neither the bridge nor its setting and context is historically or technologically noteworthy.
