Melissa,i enjoyed seeing this and every bridge from around my hometown.Since I have seen this bridge this gives me ideas to hunt around the area looking for other bridges which I know are out there.I look forward to finding other bridges.Thanks again Melissa and keep up the good work!

Melissa,thanks for posting this bridge on here.I am from Quakertown and have been over this bridge more than once,not the bridge before the present one.I just can't remember if the bridge in picture #3 has been replaced being that I haven't been in the area in over 12 years.I'll be in the area probably later this year and i'll be able to report on the condition of the present bridge.Again,thanks Melissa.
