CSX - Pleasant Run Parkway Overpass
Posted April 15, 2017, by Ron Huggler (ronald_h62 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Can you give me the date of construction? Do you have any other history, on this bridge?

I grew up and still live one block away...when I was a kid I used to run over to see the Pennsylvania R.R.'s Jeffersonisn and Spirit of St. Louis steam by.

I am an historian/researcher for the Irvington Historical Society and am currently doing a history of my neighborhood.

Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

I can be reached at this email address or by phone at 317-357-5594

Thanks, Ron Huggler
