Bristol Road Bridge under PRR Trenton Cut Off (now NS) Lower Southampton,Twp, PA
Posted September 23, 2011, by Barbara Stakes (itsjustme481 [at] verizon [dot] net)

This bridge services Septa, Trenton Transit, and frieght trains 24/7 with traffic all day long.

Bristol Road, of which traffic passes under the bridge day and night is the ONLY road in and out of this section of Oakford,(Bensalem Township)PA.

Since it's been built in 1904, it is appalling that it has not been up for re-building.

I do not 'idle' under this bridge; in fact, there should be a sign as such posted on it to travelers!!
