Bridge Water Road Bridge

Map 

Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 2-span, 36'-long bridge consists of squared timber stringers supporting wood decking. There are also two steel stringers placed under typical wheel line locations. Masonry abutments and pier have been coated in concrete. One side of the bridge has W-beam guiderail, and the other wood railing. The short-span bridge is an altered and representative example of a common type with no noteworthy features. More distinguished examples of the wood stringer construction have been identified in the region and state.
