PennDOT also as of this summer has reduced the weight limit on a bridge from Centerpor to Bernville to a miniscule 5 tons. This road is the major east west connector for this area. And for years now they have one side of the Centerport to Shartlesville Road barricaded closed because the pipe under the road is bad. Now they have the weight of the barricades full time on that side yet they wanted to limit the weight to one vehicle. These barriers way 2 or 3 tons each and at least two if not three are on the so called bad side of the road. Give me a break. Now also all the traffic is concentrated on one lane. This lane has always had pots at the bridge. At least the closed lane never exhibited any problem. Just how in competent is PennDOT. There are at least 4 bridges closed or partially restricted in this tiny little cornor of Berks County. PennDOT must have one very serious problem on their hand and be inordinately inept at correcting it.
