Todd,I grew up in the area and have been over that bridge countless times.Never looked to me to be in bad shape.I also have fished above and below this bridge.Let me know the reason for replacement because I'm very interested.Also the pin should be moved down closer to Constitution Ave and Walnut st which is also Rte 152.
