The New Bridge - Lewisburg PA
Posted March 29, 2016, by Barry (bllauver [at] toad [dot] net)

I remember this bridge well. It was replaced sometime in the 1980's. It had, at the end, a steel deck which was very narrow. It was two lanes, but it was a near thing. Will someone who has editing power please go through and correct the spellings of Susquehanna.
