Inscription.  Until it was named Federalsburg in 1812, the community took its name from the bridge at this crossing. This 215-foot concrete structure was built in 1910 by the Luten Bridge Company of York, Pennsylvania, a firm noted for its filled Spanderel Arch design. It was built as part of the newly-formed state roads commission's plan to improve the highway system. Repaired and altered after the flood of 1935.
