Luke,I'm in the dark also on the build date concerning this bridge.Outside of the newscast i also looked on the news station site and saw the year mentioned there.That's why I posted that and wondered if you knew the year.Also you mentioned another bridge besides this one.Where is that one located?
In my scant bit of Googling, I couldn't find a date for this structure aside from the article+press releases that were recently published.
I assume they've got the correct date until a field check or info find proves otherwise.
Luke,i just saw on WFMZ 69 news that this bridge will open as a trail bridge on the Schuylkill River Trail in 2020.Don't know when the work will start on converting this bridge to a trail bridge.Is 1919 the correct build date on this bridge,Luke?
According to the attached link, this and the bridge over the Schuylkill, are going to/have become part of the Bartram Trail Section of the Schuylkill River Trail:
according to the map i see 2 abandoned r.r. bridges.does anyone know the current status of these 2 abandoned r.r. bridges?
