11 feet 7 inches bridge height is way too low for a tractor trailer to attempt to go under the overpass so the rig driver I just reported on in the previous article is going to be paying for what he did especially since the bridge height was posted on the overpass.
Add this bridge to truck eating bridges.A semi trailer was heavily damaged Tuesday morning when the driver of the rig tried to squeeze under the bridge.There were no injuries reported in what the local police are calling a crash that happened shortly before 10:30 a.m. on Leesport Avenue between West Huller Lane and Snyder Road.The driver stopped 250 feet south of the bridge after the attempt to clear the bridge at Willow Creek Road where the trailer load of fertilizer was offloaded and the rig was towed.The picture of the trailer showed a busted open trailer which did not look good at all.According to the local paper Leesport Avenue was expected to be re-opened later Tuesday.I have been on this road and am unsure if tractor trailers are restricted or not.
The previous comment on this bridge belongs to me,not the world famous Anonymous.Just a little humor.
Got it Luke.Funny I never noticed this bridge before in my travels down that road.This bridge must be in good shape being that I haven't heard or read nothing about it in the local paper and I do know that Norfolk/Southern does take care of their rails and bridges.
Drop a streetview pin on the bridge over Willow Creek just south of here, rotate the view to the west.
Dana and Kay,there is a name that this rail line originally had but i can't remember it.I would have to research it and probably by doing that find out where this line ended past Lehigh Cement.
Luke,where do you see a 2 span concrete arch?I've been all over this area and i don't see it on google maps.All of these rail bridges are actually being used so let me know where it is and i can give you information on it. and
There's also a two-span concrete arch to the south.
Nice find George, looks like NS it is.
