Bnsf Rr Bridge
Posted February 12, 2012, by Randy Rasa (randy [at] cleversoul [dot] com)

This bridge is now lost, destroyed by the railroad in December 2011. The city of Gardner has an agreement with the railroad to allow a bike/ped bridge to be built in its place, but there are no firm plans for its construction.
