I drove up on this one last fall while just riding around. The rest of Brooksburg is interesting as well. There is an old barn with some odd construction.
added pictures of the pony truss on the west side of this bridge. we stopped and got permission form the man who owned the property to have a look around. but it has trees and everything else growing around and through it.
Yeah I see the endpost of it now, but man is it ever entangled by the almost mythical looking overgrowth. It would sure be nice to see this bridge restored and brought back to life.
It looks like the pony truss is still there, it's kinda hard to see in the pictures but it's there. I've attached a close up of it from Satolli's pictures below.
Looking at these pictures, I have never seen as much stuff growing out of abutments as there is on this bridge. I just hope they don't lead to it's demise. It looks like there is a golf course or posh residence behind it. Also looking at the last picture, there is supposed to be a small Warren pony truss on the other end. I can't see for sure, but it almost looks like it's gone.
Very cool pictures Satolli. Thanks a lot.
Thank you! I appreciate you posting these pictures for me. There are several people that were interested in seeing that the bridge does indeed still exist. Would love to see it someday restored as a pedestrian bridge.
Yeah I added it in hopes that someone out there has some pics to add. I was there several years back and took 1 pic with a film camera(yep....seems like an eternity) from way downstream at the highway bridge. I have been looking for that picture to scan, but no luck so far. I remember at that time not being able to get closer to the bridge. Hopefully someone will respond.
Glad to see this bridge added to the list. Hopefully somebody will upload some pictures soon.
