Just read in todays local paper that this bridge has been replaced and is reopened.Looking at the picture in the paper this bridge looks just like the previous bridge.This bridge was completed under budget and two weeks earlier than anticipated.Spring and Lower Heidelberg townships split the $500,000 cost of replacement of this bridge which was originally built in 1901 and reconstructed in 1968.

Thanks for posting this bridge Dana and Kay on this site.I will be keeping an eye on this bridge being that I do cross this bridge to go fishing at Blue Marsh lake.
