NEWLIN: A small bridge reopens

After a year of being shut, the stretch of Green Valley Road between Powell Road and Brandywine Creek Road in Newlin Township is once again officially open to traffic.
In May 2016, PennDOT declared that the small bridge over Sweet Creek, a tiny tributary to the Brandywine, was unsafe because the steel beams underneath had deteriorated. They have fixed it, but it doesn't look much different other than the new asphalt on the road and the shiny metal guardrails. But what a beautiful back road Green Valley is, especially in the early spring! I saw a hillside covered with may apples and yellow trout lilies, a wonderful sight.
