The funky "speed limit 12" is likely one of those things that the state/town/county/whoever has done simply to get drivers attention. That's the most common reason for unusual speed limits, because it causes drivers to "wake up" when they see something odd like that.

Thanks for clearing that up,Mike.So the bridge is actually on a public right of way.

Pennsylvania's Historic Bridge Inventory states:

"The bridge is not part of the mill, and it is not located in or adjacent to any potential historic district related to the mill or the towns."

I would think it's not private property unless it was specifically sold to a private entity (much like what happened here in Bay City, MI last month).

Nathan,i noticed the road this bridge is on dead ends at what looks like an abandoned manufacturing plant.I wonder if this bridge and beyond it are private property?
