Penns Creek Bridge
Built in 1919, a two-span concrete barrel arch bridge of unusual architectural quality crossed Penns Creek on this site until 1994. The architectural detailing included fluted pilasters at the center pier and cast concrete parapets with an open star design. The bridge was designed by engineer G. A. Fink and built by Whittaker and Diehl of Harrisburg.
Erected by Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
