The Top of the Skew Arch Bridge

The Top of the Skew Arch Bridge

This is the Skew Arch Bridge. The arch of the bridge was placed at an angle to accommodate an intersection of the Allegheny Portage Railroad, and the Northern Turnpike. The turnpike ran over the top of the bridge. The bridge continued to be used by vehicle traffic, after the railroad had ceased operation, until 1922. The former road is now covered with grass.
