Venango Veterans Memorial Bridge in Pennsylvania

The next bridge on the tour is the Venengo Veterans Memorial Bridge, located just in the outskirts of a small village of Venango, which is between Saegertown and Cambridge Springs in the northwestern part of the state. Built in 1893 by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company in Canton in neighboring Ohio, the 2-span Pratt through truss bridge was closed to traffic in 2002 and if it has not happened yet, it is scheduled to be removed this year.

Why?  Take a look at the following pics here and guess what is happening to the bridge. Your guesses can be posted in the comment section or on the facebook page and the answer in the next posting will surprise you.
