as per an article printed in the reading eagle located in reading pa. 6-7-15 in the life section of the paper they went into great detail about this bridge.especially about when it was built and when the truss bridge was added.this combination truss/covered bridge would be a bridge I would like to see.being from pa. it is no problem for me to drive there.
