LUDLOW â The South Hillside Avenue bridge in Ludlow is considered a âhigh priorityâ for maintenance.
This is the label listed for the bridge in a report from inspectors for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
Hamilton Township, owner of the bridge, now is under the gun to make repairs as early as this month, according to the report.
C.C. Johnson & Malhorta (CCJM), an engineering firm from Camp Hill, issued the critical report after inspecting the bridge that crosses Two Mile Run.
South Hillside Avenue is near the Ludlow Post Office on the west end of town.
After diagnosing Terika Schleicher with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy, doctors believed she would never be able to walk because the neurological condition would negatively affect both of Schleicherâs arms and legs.
The doctorsâ worries didnât stop there.
Because of a stroke before her birth, a portion of Schleicherâs brain wasnât able to form correctly. Instead, an arachnoid cyst grew to take the place of the damaged tissue. Doctors werenât sure if she would ever be able to talk or attend a regular school.
