Spring Brook Twp. Bridge Closed Due To Safety Concerns

November 8, 2018

SPRING BROOK TWP.Rainfall blamed for bridge closure Recent rainfall is responsible for the closure of a township bridge. Pennsylvania Department of Transportation personnel performing an inspection on a Route 502 bridge near Moosic noticed the rain had washed away four or five feet of dirt used to help support the bridge, rendering it unsafe, PennDOT spokesman James May said. There is nothing structurally deficient with the span, May said. Work to make the bridge safe is expected to take a few weeks. Officials are working to determine a detour route. — CLAYTON OVER
