Belmont Avenue Bridge in Belmont Hills, PA
Posted October 23, 2009, by Sandi (bowkdeck [at] verizon [dot] net)

Are there any weight or width limits on this bridge? I have been trying to locate information on an old bridge( rebuilt 1931, bridge #310) in our town in an attempt to determine the weight and width limits on it. Approximately 4 years ago the parapet(SP?) fell into the (Brock or Buc, Creek 82 N Main St,Yardley, Pa)on the one side of the road.

Having difficulties getting info from Penn DOT as to the limits that were once posted at tthe end of town but have disappeared!Thanks in advance for any info you could give me!
