The 40-foot-long span is a Parker pony truss, a design distinguished by not being held together by cross beams.
Pennsylvania Department of Transportation spokeswoman Valerie Peterson calls it "just one of their ways to preserve bridges."
The county-owned bridge built in 1903 by Penn Bridge Co. of Beaver Falls features stone approaches and decorative lattice railings and is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
