Inscription.  Berks County authorized construction of the Dauberville Bridge, built on this site in 1908. This was one of the earliest examples of concrete bridge construction in Pennsylvania. As constructed, the arches, each spanning seventy-five feet, the four arches were flanked by long wing walls, and the parapets articulated with simple score lines. The Dauperville Bridge was designed by Nevin M. Davis, the County Engineer of Berks County, and was constructed by Levy H. Gocht and Son of Reading. The bridge was one of fifteen concrete arch bridges nominated to the National Register of Historic Places in Pennsylvania.
 
Erected by Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
