Conocochegue Creek Bridge

South side

PENNDOT started tearing out this old bridge late summer 2010. I decided to document knowing it would be replaced with a standard, utilitarian (boring) concrete bridge.

Description 

From PennDOT Travel Advisory site: PennDOT has contracted with Clearwater Construction, Inc. of Mercer, Pennsylvania, to conduct the bridge replacement project at a cost of $981,000. The existing bridge was built in 1937 and is currently classified as structurally deficient (SD). The project will replace the existing steel structure with a new concrete bridge. The project also includes rebuilding the roadway approaches to the new bridge. The project is scheduled for completion by mid-April 2011.
