A warning barrier that leads to the covered bridge in Lower Towamensing Township has been struck.
Contacted Friday, township board of Supervisors Chairman Brent Green said he believes the barrier was most likely struck by a truck.
Currently, the barrier is in a driveway near the bridge, and has been down for several weeks, Green said.
"There are trucks entering it that shouldn't be driving over it," Green said. "It's only a 5-ton (weight limit) bridge."
Carbon County Commissioners' Chairman Wayne Nothstein said commissioners are aware of the situation.
