As per an article printed in the Reading Eagle on 7/19/17 the warning sign about this bridge being closed has been replaced and affixed to a large metal barricade.Also it was reported motorists are being routed onto this bridge by GPS.No wonder that rig got where he was,i'll bet.

I posted information on the forum page on 6/17/17 about this bridge being closed and a road closed sign being knocked down by a tractor trailer making a u-turn.I noticed also that the street is actually Penn Ave.,not Penn St.Didn't know this bridge was listed on Bridgehunters.
