Quick note, yet disturbing ...
Notice all of the bridge work in the area? There is good reason:
• 5,906 bridges in PA are rated as 'structurally deficient' making PA the worst in the nation. We are more likely to pass a degraded bridge than a McDonalds.

The cracks, now repaired, in the bridge over Rt. 100 (Rt. 422 overpass) is a good example of a subject to question. Are there any civil engineers who can comment if the earthquake on August 23, 2011 had any bearing on the structural integrity of our bridges?
