Long Description:
Although this bridge is being used for storage on a private farm property, the structure has been maintained in fairly good condition.

The downstrean side and portals are covered with shiplapped siding and the upstream side is covered with clapboard siding. The sides are open at approximately mid-wall height for the length of the bridge. These side openings are similary to the ones at the Sauck's Bridge, also in Adams County.
Current Condition of Bridge: Fairly Good
