Cross Keys Road- Schuykill River ( Replacement)

Dana and Kay,to confirm your suspicions about this bridge i read in yesterday's Reading Eagle that the truss bridge that was here originally was destroyed by tropical storm Agnes and that this bridge was replaced with the concrete span presently there.They said in the article that the debris laden overflowing Schuylkill river actually lifted the steel structure off of its concrete supports.I find it funny they said the bridge was "wiped out".The iron truss was built in 1891.Hopefully this answers any questions you may have

You are correct Dana and Kay.This was a replacement bridge which replaced a truss bridge.Don't remember when it was replaced.

Wonder if this was a 1972 Hurricane Agnes casualty?
