Editor's Note: Compared to how nicely the other bridges in our area have turned out, it's a shame how big of a "bump" there is when driving over this new bridge!  They recently shaved it down and add another seam, which makes it a little better, but it's still pretty rough.


PARADISE TOWNSHIP -- The "closed bridge" and "detour" signs have been moved and the bridge on Route 940 in Paradise Township is back open for business, bringing relief for many including businesses that were affected.

"We are so excited and I couldn't even imagine how excited I was for this bridge to open," said Suzie Eckhart, Kasa's Pizza and Taco Bell manager.

Major demolition work at the old Inn at Buck Hill Falls is scheduled to begin next month.

However, just like obtaining any details surrounding the ultimate fate of the former landmark, getting specific information about the scheduled work has proved nearly impossible.

“What I know is that the Buck Hill Falls Company is knocking down property there,” said Barrett Township Supervisor and Roadmaster John Seese, who noted that the township doesn’t have anything to do with the demolition work.

Several messages left for Buck Hill Falls Company President Michael O’Shea went unreturned.
