Small Bridge Could Cause Big Problem For Business in Poconos
MIDDLE SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP -- The Tom X Road Bridge in Middle Smithfield Township is scheduled to close Thursday as crews work on a small bridge over Longshore Creek. That work may take until mid-September to complete. “It has to be replaced, I guess. They said it's structurally deficient. There's nothing we can do about it,” said Steve Van Why, owner of Historic Tom X Pub.
