There are two bridges over a the RR track on this road. The wood one is closer to the blocked pony truss. The concrite bridges are on the other side of the road. By the way the truss bridge was replaced. It's replacement is a modern pony truss. It is open to traffic.

M cox,i saw at least 2 concrete spans,1 over r.r. tracks and 1 over a waterway.I also saw a truss bridge on satellite than had barriers on it so you couldn't drive over it.Do you know about this bridge or is this bridge opened or replaced?

I would like to say that it still exists😄! It has been mistaken for a concrete bridge on the other end of the road. We went on a bridge hunt a few weeks ago ago and it was there.

Most of these are around 80 years old.....definitely historic and worthy of documentation. I honestly haven't gone out of my way looking for them in the past, but like concrete (non-arch variety) bridges I have started adding them when I come across them.

This past year I was alerted to one located about 12 miles North of my hometown........

I had driven over this as a teenager, but had totally forgotten that it even existed. Fortunately, the railroad corridor beneath it has found new life as part of a major pedestrian trail system, so hopefully this old girl will be around for a long time.

J.P., I've posted several of this type myself. There used to be quite a few in the tri-state area, but slowly but surely, they're disappearing. Better we get them now than shoulda, woulda, coulda a few years from now.

Me too. I've added a couple of railroad bridges and know of another from about 1930, I've just not had the opportunity to get over there for pictures.

Maybe I'll do that today; it's either that or clean house.

I have no problem with it. I've even added several myself.
