I just happened to look at Septa's regional map and saw train service ended at Elwyn which is east of Wawa which means this bridge and rail was deactivated.Evidently Septa is reactivating this rail line beyond Elwyn to Wawa including replacing this bridge.Beyond Wawa heading west i do not know if anything will happen with any rail or bridges.I will post any more information when it becomes available.

Dana and kay,as of this weekend this bridge will be removed and replaced with a new bridge.Why this is being done is because of projected ridership due to a new railroad station and parking garage being built near the bridge.U.S.-1 will be closed to traffic while the bridge is being removed and the new bridge installed with detours in place.I'm guessing as to the new bridge being installed this weekend being that the new bridge being installed wasn't mentioned.

Thanks,Dana and Kay for posting about the bridge.I just read more about this bridge that's being removed.From what the article on the channel 6 website said a new railroad station is being opened up in the town of Wawa.I don't think a new bridge is being put in.In other words if I'm not mistaken this rail line will end at Wawa.I could be mistaken.If I find anything else out I'll post it here.
