Description 

Happened across this "bridge" when shooting the BNSF/EJ&E bridges. Not sure of its history. The park its in is called Copley Island but there's no trace that this was an island. The one side has been filled in but from the other side you can tell its a bridge. Its definitely old. Concrete is the old rough type like bridge from the early 1900's.
