LOWER POTTSGROVE TWP., Pa. - The main entrance to the historic SunnyBrook Ballroom near Pottstown is open again.
Work to replace a wooden bridge that collapsed under the weight of a 50-ton crane is now complete.
With a new bridge over the Sprogels Run creek in place, customers can once again access the ballroom and Gatsby's restaurant from SunnyBrook Road.
The business owners said they're grateful the project could be completed so quickly after the May 15 incident.
"Kinsley Construction knew the importance the bridge had to our business and they did everything in their power to complete the rebuild as quickly and efficiently as possible. We can't thank them enough for how responsive they've been," said Chuck Gulati, SunnyBrook's president. "Additionally, Lower Pottsgrove Township’s responsiveness and support was instrumental in getting the bridge reopened so quickly."
SunnyBrook is planning to celebrate the opening of the new bridge with a party next Friday, July 7, offering customers half-price drinks and half-price appetizers.
No one was injured in the mishap, which happened less than two years after the ballroom was reopened by the Gulati family of Berks County.
