Article regarding the bridge with pictures:
The dastards! How insulting that they intend to destroy another of my fine creations! I'll have to rebuke them sharply when they get up here! If they get up here!
Waste of tax payer money to take it down without any logical reason. That same money could go towards preserving the bridge.
Whipple trusses never disappoint, but this one is a really nice example!
How typical. Here we have an exceedingly rare pin-connected wrought iron Whipple truss. The county plans to demolish it for absolutely no reason (no replacement planned). The bridge could easily be left standing for pedestrians. The bridge design is more rare than any of the several wooden covered bridges in the county. Yet, once again, every single covered bridge in the county is preserved and has a fresh coat of paint on it, while this metal truss bridge (whose design is more rare in Pennsylvania than the designs of the covered bridges) is sentenced to the dumpster.
