The inter-borough bridge, linking the Mauch Chunks, long considered as one of the worse "death traps" in the Pennsylvania State Highway Department's system, will be rebuilt. The Public Utility Commission today condemned the existing structure as "dangerous and grossly inadequate." The announcement was received with enthusiasm here today, particularly among citizens who in years past and in more recent months have vigorously pursued a campaign to have the bridge condemned.
