Removal of abandoned railroad piers at Colwyn, PA

Description: Removal of two abandoned railroad piers constructed of reinforced concrete. Construction was completed in September 2012.

Benefits of removal: The piers trapped debris and contributed to local overtopping of banks and over-widening of the channel. Removal of the piers is expected to alleviate these impacts.
