The Bridge was repaired with joint funds from Northumberland and Montour Counties.

Eagles in the nearby farm field - you can see (look for small specks in this photo, on the ground) one at the top edge of the truck, and the second above the edge of the combine, in this photo.  Neighbors walking past said these eagles can often be seen in this area, and around the bridge.
