Tamaqua Bridge Renovation Coming

This is the Broad Street bridge as photographed by Andrew Leibenguth from the Tamaqua Hi-Rise Apartments. 

The Broad Street Bridge in Tamaqua will close this week. For the next few months the people will have to find a way around it. That is the Schuylkill River passing under it. It starts a couple miles north of town and flows into the Delaware River in Philadelphia - near the airport.

My junior high school used to stand in the spot where this picture was taken. In the 1960s - we used to watch the toilet paper go down the river to Philadelphia. We used to put a sign in the bathroom - flush hard - it is a long way to Philly.
