Rick,you are correct about the location of this bridge being in Exeter Township in Berks County being that I am currently living in Reading Pa and put information on the Berks County entry of this bridge about work that was just done to this bridge.

This bridge was [its replacement is] in BERKS County NOT Luzerne. It crossed the Schuylkill River NOT the Susquehanna. It was actually up stream from where it is shown on the map. Its replacement is at the spot shown on the map. In fact the present bridge is a 2019 replacement for the 1972 replacement bridge that replaced this bridge. Regards ...
