Luxapallila Creek Bridge

Indeed, Fayette County seems committed to destroying every single one of their pony truss bridges over Luxapallila Creek. This one does appear to be on the chopping block, to join several others, some of which weren't even replaced by new bridges.

As per ATRIP report, this bridge is very likely soon to be replaced.
