Roaring Creek Bridge, State Road 2005 spanning Roaring Creek in Locust Township, Slabtown, Columbia County, PA



Significance: The two-span, 97' long reinforced bridge at Slabtown over Roaring Creek has neo-classical balustrades making it one of the earliest examples of an architectonic deck arch bridge in the region. Although it is situated in a rural village setting, it reflects the tenets of the City Beautiful movement. The bridge's significance lies in the rarity of its design in a region that holds no other parallel examples.
