Weight limit for a Northumberland County bridge

DANVILLE – Another bridge in The Valley will be getting a weight limitation next week.  According to PennDOT, a Northumberland County bridge is next on the list of restrictions.  The state bridge that carries Little Roaring Creek Road over Little Roaring Creek in Rush Township will be posted with a limit of 33 tons starting Tuesday.

 

The posting is part of a statewide initiative to ensure bridge safety and preserve the state’s aging bridge system.  The bridge was built in 1928.  PennDOT believes reducing the weight traveling on these bridges will slow down their deterioration and preserve safety while funding for their repairs remains uncertain.
