RI - Fox River Bridge #3

Photos 

East View

The former Rock Island ROW flanks Hwy 2 on both sides. A TPG overpass used to be here where the railroad crossed over the highway. The Fox River goes underneath the highway just in front of the former RR overpass, then passes underneath the old railroad fill on the right.
