I am very familiar with this area and am wondering why this bridge is being opened for vehicle traffic when it is nowhere near Bridge Street and Nutt Road.Also wouldn't it interfere with the trail system?

This bridge is being rebuilt as part of a townhouse/apartment project on the land on the Northside (of Phoenixville). This will provide much needed traffic relief on both Nutt Rd and Bridge St.
