Patrick,

The person who photodocuments Chester County bridges for HistoricBridges.org said she had trouble finding this bridge. She is going to try to seek it out again when the weather gets better, so it should end up online eventually (along with a bunch more Chester County bridges she photographed that I have yet to add).

Are you kidding?! I've never seen such high fencing on such a small bridge! I've been on bridges fifty times as tall as this that have shorter fencing than this bridge will have! The adjacent highway bridge is higher than this bridge! What on earth are they thinking they need that for?
