As of May 2018, this bridge still hasn't been replaced. Hopefully the project will never get off the ground and the bridge will never be replaced.

Wangum Road Bridge (Pennsylvania)
Posted July 14, 2016

http://www.neagle.com/news/20160712/wangum-bridge-open-to-public

Wangum Falls Bridge opened to the public on June 24, 2016.

The one-lane steel truss bridge crosses the waterfalls on Middle Creek, on Wangum Road, Township Route 367.

PennDOT chose a design to carefully match the historic appearance, after much concern was expressed by preservationists. The state had it listed for replacement since 2002. Normally the state would not build a steel truss, but rather install a modern concrete span.

The former bridge was considered historic due to being an excellent example of a field riveted design, and the unique setting with a narrow rock cut on the east side where a historic gravity railroad passed.

Beginning in late August, Bell said, the tedious, detailed job of moving the 1874 Springfield-Des Arc bridge to Beaverfork Lake in Conway will begin.
