Description 

FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 4 span, 295'-long steel stringer bridge has metal angle and channel railings, concrete filled steel grid deck, rolled steel beam stringers with welded angle crossbracing, concrete piers and concrete abutments with wingwalls. Built in 1948, the bridge has no innovative or distinguishing details and is an example of the most common, mid-20th century bridge type in the state. The bridge is a standard design developed by the state highway department in the early 1930s. Neither the bridge nor its setting or context are historically or technologically noteworthy.

This bridge replaced the Quigleys Twin Bridges.
