>Bridge Conditions at Delco Area Train Station

>I was on an assignment for my college campus news, taking photos at a train station on Nov. 19 for a Septa story. The assigment was to take photos of the Septa trains, people boarding and getting off of the train.

While waiting for the train, I was taking photos of other subjects and the bridge going over the tracks was of particular interest. I noticed that the bridge had piles of bricks used as added support going across under both lanes. It brought to mind the infrastructure problem across America, with many bridges and roads needing serious repair.

Here is a link to one photo I took of the bridge: http://bit.ly/ihlvYh. The link will take you directly to my photo in the http://www.allaroundphilly.com news site’s user photo gallery.

I’ve been told that this particular bridge in on a list for some major work, although I don’t know when that will happen. I haven’t been on a Septa train in a long time, so I’m not usually down by the bridge. It shocked me to see just how bad the bridge looks when viewed from the train station parking lot.
