Penn Dot announced the Pond Eddy Bridge will be replaced. The bridge has taken a pounding over the years. Several incidents where overweight vehicles have traveled over the span and severely damaged the structure, have resulted in the bridge being reduced to a 7 ton weight limit..
The new bridge will not have any weight restriction, it will still be a single span with a double truss, but it will be easily accessible for emergency vehicles to cross over.
Penn Dot says they estimate the new bridge to cost 17.2 million dollars. They expect to have the work completed by December of 2018.
