Warrior Run Bridge


FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The one span, 51' long, 4 panel, pin-connected Pratt pony truss bridge built in 1896 is traditionally composed. Like most of the other pin connected, pony truss bridges in the county, new concrete abutments have been placed in front of and include the original abutments, and deep stringers have been placed. There is a laminated wood deck. The ends of the truss bridge are now encased in the new abutment, and the trusses support themselves but take little, if any, of the live loads. The alterations compromise the integrity of the bridge, and it is not historically or technologically significant.
