1893

Bergey’s Mill Road Bridge is another example of PA’s crumbling infrastructure. It’s one of the longer (and older) truss bridges I’ve seen around these parts. A contribution to Signs, signs, and The weekend in Black and White 6-June-2014.  A wider of the bridge is shown below, where you can see the date in perspective.

    Crumbling infrastructure must be contagious. It’s happening here also.

    If I hadn’t know better, I would have said that the top photo was made from scratch. Very well done.

    Your black and white photo is so crisp and sharp that it doesn’t seem to belong to the rusting bridge. Great comparison.

  13. That is a great looking bridge. Love the sign. We have a number of bridges like this, but I think they are not quite as old.
