NBI doesn't go back that far, need someone with PENNDOT research capabilities. Anyone?

You are correct,Dana and Kay.According to my fiancee who was born and raised here near where the bridge is located told me that this bridge replaced the previous bridge.She didn't remember if the previous bridge was a truss or concrete bridge.Is there any way to find out about the previous bridge?

George looks like Bridge in Reading Eagle. Wonder if predecessor was Hurricane Agnes Casualty in '72.
