NS RR -Water Street Laurel Run
Posted April 10, 2020, by George A Oakley (Georgeoakley49 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

I read in todays local paper that a rig driver hauling a backhoe hit this bridge Thursday morning,rupturing the hydraulic lines which caused the hydraulic fluid to leak down an embankment into the Laurel Run Creek.Some hydraulic fluid did leak into the creek.Even though the bridge is posted for a height of 9 feet 2 inches the rig driver did ignore this according to the paper.By the way,the other bridge next to this one is the main N/S freight line to all points north of Reading.I have seen N/S freight trains on both bridges.
