North Pocono Trail - Roaring Brook Bridge
Posted March 14, 2021, by Luke

Currently, the bridge is being converted to construction vehicle use, as the couplet on 380 is doomed, but I've also seen that the bridge will likely become part of the long-planned North Pocono Trail after the new bridges on 380 are constructed.
