305th Street Overpass
Posted October 25, 2018, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Visited this bridge recently. It appears to have been an old turntable or bridge for railroad use, rebuilt and converted to road use. There is one structure confirmed to have been constructed using this technique for the same railroad in Minnesota. I will request additional information on this bridge from the Milwaukee Road Archives.
