Penns Creek US 522 Bridge
Posted September 14, 2010, by Barry Lauver (bllauver [at] toad [dot] net)

Until about 1980 this was US 11/15 which went through the middle of Selinsgrove. US 522 began at the T-intersection just south of the bridge. The abutments for the old bridge are a few hundred yards downstream and the pilings for the Sunbury to Selinsgrove trolly line are a few hundred yards upstream. The trolly line traces are visible from the road. You have to hunt for the old road bridge abutments.
