Description 

In Jeopardy:

"ASHLEY, Pa. Ashley borough officials chose not to buy the Culvert Street bridge and restore it despite pleas from residents.

The Luzerne County Redevelopment Authority procured nearly $100,000 through a state grant program to tear down an old railroad bridge in Ashley. The Culvert Street bridge sits in a part of town known as the Patch. The owners offered to sell the bridge to the borough council for $1 Monday night."

Luke,

Thanks for pointing out the duplicate. Can you pull Paulette Zardecki's stuff over from the forum?

Regards,
