I hope they can replace it.

Replacement is not slated until late 2014 at the earliest. They will shut it down for a year at that time. Heard it may get shut down earlier if deemed unsafe. I'm guessing based on the results of today's inspection.

Considering the pace of recent bridge work in my part of the Perkiomen Valley, users of that span will be lucky if it's closed for only a year.

No bridge sturdy enough to get my chops across.

Ok, June 1st and this is still being posted. Went acrossed it Friday morning and it was just fine. Has 3 ton weight limit. If anyone is worried about this bridge, why don't you contact Rep. Vereb's office and he will give you an update. He discussed it at his May23rd Eggs and Talk with twp. residents.
