Read in todays paper about this bridge.This bridge was built in 1913 with concrete cast on site as it was being built.It does have a weight limit of 13 tons.About 2,106 vehicles cross this bridge daily.The replacement bridge will be built to PennDOT standards using conventional construction with precast concrete beams and concrete side barriers.It will accommodate any type of vehicle and have no weight limitations.Also the new bridge will be 12 feet wider.Preliminary engineering on the site will end this month and design will continue through spring 2021 with construction scheduled for summer 2021.During construction detours will be in effect.
