This bridge was re-opened after a restoration to the bridge.According to the article by WFMZ69 news the floor was replaced with a metal grate floor due to the boards coming loose.Don't have any other information than what was in the article which is on Google where i read it besides seeing the article on WFMZ69 news and WABC6 philly news yesterday.
