Skippack Bridge
Posted September 18, 2014, by Thomas H. (Trhols514 [at] comcast [dot] net)

For clarification...this bridge, as well as Germantown Pike, carried US 422 from 1966 to 1985 (source: pahighways.com). Once the expressway from Pottstown to King of Prussia was completed, that road took the route number. The road on which Skippack Bridge is located is now known simply as Germantown Pike. As for the bridge itself, modern traffic is pushing its capacity to the limit, for sure.
