BNSF - Nodaway River Bridge
Posted September 16, 2017, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Judging by the aerial imagery, that extra set of piers under the bridge has probably been there for a while. It appears to have been there in 2014 and even as far back as 2012. Not sure why those extra piers would be built, except for additional support. Weird.
