Bishop Bridge is located on Bishop Road southwest of Bowmansdale on the Cumberland-York County Line.  The Bridge, which has been determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Place, is an early Pratt Thru Truss bridge with a nice decorative railing. The bridge was designed and built by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Ohio in 1898. The counties wish to sell the bridge because of its limited capacity for vehicular travel.  The buyer will be responsible to dissemble and move the bridge.  The purchase price is negotiable.  For more information, please contact Kirk Stoner, AICP, Cumberland County Director of Planning, at 717-240-5381.
