Bridge Documentation

This is a Pennsylvania through truss bridge located in a scenic area and apparently will be spared demolition despite a replacement project. Reportedly, the new bridges being built to support a new four-lane divided highway (future extension of King's Highway 400) will carry the main flow of traffic while the heritage bridge will be retained to be used as part of a service road between the interchanges at Pickerel River Road and Highway 607. There is a heritage railway bridge visible in the distance east of this bridge. If anyone wants to share photos of this bridge please contact HistoricBridges.org.
