South Pleasant View Bridge Demolition Continues
BRINGING IT DOWN – Demolition continued Wednesday (Nov. 20, 2020) at the site of the South Pleasant View Road bridge that crosses U.S. Route 422 in Lower Pottsgrove Township. Workers (at top center) seemed to ignore the west- and eastbound high-speed traffic passing them by just beyond protective concrete barriers. Heavy equipment (below) hauled away large chucks of concrete that formerly were part of the bridge foundation. Its removal and subsequent replacement are part of Pennsylvania Department of Transportation projects to restore a significant section of 422 running between U.S. Route 202 and the Berks County line.
