Pennsylvania Railroad 1st Street Underpass
Posted February 21, 2011, by Ed Hollowell (erhollowell [at] aol [dot] com)

The rail line that this bridge carried was rebuilt in 1910 with the right-of-way being elevated and crossing separations being added in many places. This bridge likely dates from that time. The line was abandoned by Conrail in the early 1980's.
