Clarks Summit Bridge
Posted October 31, 2017, by george oakley (georgeoakley49 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

I remember driving over this bridge when i used to travel to upstate New York for salmon fishing and to a friends house in Susquehanna Pa.The only time i was really scared was when they had cattleshutes on this bridge and i had to race a tractor-trailer to them on the northbound side.As you can see i'm still here in one piece.
