Oaklawn Avenue Overpass
Posted June 28, 2016, by Martin Batistelli (batistellim [at] metro [dot] net)

This bridge currently crosses over the Metro Gold Line. It once crossed both the ATSF and the LA&SL (Los Angeles and Salt Lake RR), a predecessor to Union Pacific. The LA&SL/UP abandoned their ROW and ATSF sold their ROW to Metro. Metro Rail is a different entity from Metrolink. Metrolink never crossed under this bridge or had any involvement.
