HOORAY!!!!.....A Pennsylvania county that actually gets it!
Hats off to Luzerne County!.....And may the concept spread throughout the state!
The Luzerne County engineer chose to rehabilitate this historic bridge, finding that they could do so for far less than the cost of constructing an ugly 2 lane modern bridge. This is often the case with historic truss bridges, but is often a fact overlooked. Fortunately, due to the success of this bridge rehabilitation, the county is looking into rehabilitating more county historic bridges. An excellent preservation success story.
