FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY:
'The 2-span, 103'-long, steel thru girder bridge built in 1902 has significant alterations, including the loss of original built-up floorbeams with riveted connections, and replacement with rolled floorbeams with welded connections and an open steel grid deck (ca. 1960). The bridge is supported on stone abutments and pier with several generations of concrete patching and repairs. Bridge plaques identify the bridge fabricator as Nelson & Buchanan of Chambersburg. The firm was a prolific builder of bridges in the region from 1883 to the 1910s, and many more distinguished examples of their work have been identified in the region and county. The bridge is not historically distinguished by its context or setting.
