Wangum Road Bridge (Pennsylvania)
Posted July 14, 2016

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.

Sounds like they are going to keep this bridge in place and build a replacement bridge upstream.
