English Center suspension bridge closed for safety reasons

English Center suspension bridge closed for safety reasons
 

Motorists who travel Route 4001 (Little Pine Creek Road) in Pine Township, Lycoming County, are advised that the steel suspension truss bridge over Little Pine Creek, one-half mile west of Route 287 at English Center, is being closed for safety reasons, effective immediately.

The aging bridge, built in 1891, and previously posted with a 3-ton weight limit, is being closed because one of the cross member supports snapped. The bridge is currently deemed unsafe to cross.

Motorists are advised to use the detour via Routes 44, 973 and 287.

PennDOT will investigate repair options.
