Horsham-Montgomery Bridge

Bridge

The Horsham–Montgomery Bridge is a stone bridge that carries Pennsylvania Route 152 (Limekiln Pike) over the Little Neshaminy Creek in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, United States. Lower State Road merges with Limekiln Pike southwest of the bridge, and diverts from it northeast of the bridge. Lower State Road, including its passage over the bridge, forms the border between Horsham and Montgomery Townships.96

Built in 1839, the multiple-span arch bridge is an excellent example of 19th-century stone highway bridges. It has two 19.5-foot-long (5.9 m) arches with an overall length of 125-foot (38 m).<2>

The bridge's northbound lane was closed in May 2010 and the bridge was considered for demolition. It was repaired, instead, and was re-opened in late 2012.

The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988, #88000836.
