East Branch Sugar Creek Bridge
Posted August 1, 2007, by Nathan Gibbs (stephnateg1 [at] comcast [dot] net)

This bridge was replaced with a concrete adjacent box beam bridge in the summer of 2004. I worked on that project for PennDOT, and was heartbroken that such an historic bridge would be replaced without any attempt to preserve it.
