FROM THE 1996-2001 PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIC BRIDGE SURVEY: The skewed, single span, 24'-long stone arch bridge built in 1917 has voussoirs and fieldstone spandrel walls and parapets with replacement concrete coping and grapevine repointing. The intrados has been coated in gunite. The bridge is an altered, short and late example of the traditional stone arch bridge technology that has been in use in the state since the colonial period. Over 350 examples have been identified statewide with approximately two-thirds dating to before 1900. More complete and distinguished examples in the county are BMS #'s 66 7220 0974 3202 & 66 4016 0020 2668. The bridge is not historically or technologically significant for its setting or context.
