Pa 453 Bridge
Posted May 22, 2011, by Nathan Holth (form3 [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

This bridge was not replaced as listed here, what you see in these photos is the completion of a structure rehabilitation. In what may be an all-time first for PennDOT, the original railings were replaced with faithful replicas, making this an exemplary rehabilitation. I have full details over at HistoricBridges.org http://www.historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowse...
