Is the Ninth Street Bridge in Lehighton slipping into more serious deterioration?
At least one member of Lehighton Borough Council believes it is.
Scott Rehrig, vice president of the council, told the council, "The bridge is dropping some more."
Rehrig urged that a letter be sent to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation asking if it knows when repairs to the bridge will occur.
He said the bridge is used by school buses as well as truck traffic and he has concerns about safety.
