Stange Road Underpass
Posted January 12, 2012, by Nathan Holth (form3 [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

NBI listings for railroad over highway bridges are frequently in error. Some railroad over highway bridges are not even listed at all. Since they are private bridges they do not have the priority for NBI listing as other bridges.
