New bridge over Marsh Creek now open in Curtin Township

The Marsh Creek bridge spanning Little Marsh Creek on state Route 1002 in Curtin Township has opened after having been replaced, according to PennDOT.

The old bridge had been deemed structurally deficient.

Overall work included removal of the old bridge, placement of the new bridge, paving and guardrail updates, the PennDOT release said.

Another bridge on Route 1002 — east of the Curtin-Boggs township line — will be replaced in 2015.
