Description 

Another bottleneck to get past, you had to make sharp turns to pass under the bridge as SR 124 switched from one side to the other of track. Deck and girders removed but Concrete abutments remain. Area completely bypassed by new SR 124 alignment. Very Low clearance for road traffic with tight turns to pass under. Once beautiful concrete supports on either side of roadway beside abutments, now eyesore abandoned to North of current highway alignment.
