I just saw a picture of this bridge in the Reading Eagle in the past few days that showed it is still closed.Haven't heard anything about this bridge via the newspaper or local radio.When i do hear anything i will print it here.

as per an article printed 5-26-15 in the reading eagle the maidencreek township supervisors are delaying making a decision on this bridge.the options are removal,rehabilitation or full rehabilitation of the bridge.also maidencreek township is arguing about ownership of the bridge once work is done with pendot.any future articles printed in the paper I will print here.
