Just wanted to say original plans were to be built up

to the old Tarentum High School, local business shot those

plans down and down it's one of the few dumb looking

bridges that are not plumb with the river. When looking

up river on the Route 28 expressway, the bridge is on a

downward angle towards Tarentum. Who ever allowed this

to happen back in the forties should have been arrested.
