Mclean Station Road Bridge in Marlborough Township, PA

I miss the old Bridge, This was the quickest way to get to town via rt 29 and rt 63. With the bridge closed it could also be cause for loss of life and property, emergency vehicles now have to drive the long way around. Many time they go to the wrong side of the bridge and now have to drive all the way back around. If your having a medical emergency seconds count.
