FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The 3-span, 127'-long stone arch bridge built ca. 1860 is listed in the National Register. Since the previous survey, the stone parapets have had the addition of concrete liners to the interior faces. A section of lost parapet over the bridge's eastern span has been replaced by a concrete parapet.

This bridge is being completely rebuilt the original way: with stone. It's an impressive project.
