Amtrak - North Branch Park River Bridge

Map 

Description 

Double-arch bridge over the North Branch of the Park River on the Amtrak Springfield Line (originally the Hartford and New Haven Railroad). Since the river has been covered over in a culvert, most of the bridge appears to be filled in, but the tops of the arches are still visible from I-84 west during the winter.
