READING, Pa. - PennDOT will share information with the public about its plans to rehabilitate the Penn Street Bridge between Reading and West Reading.
The agency will hold a meeting for residents, business owners and motorists on Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Schmidt Training & Technology Center, which is located just north of the bridge on the campus of Reading Area Community College, officials announced Monday.
