Amtrak - Ten Mile River Bridge No. 32.50
"The Boston and Providence Railroad was chartered in 1831. Trains between Boston and Canton Junction (originally Canton) began operating on September 12, 1834. Through service between Boston and Providence began with the completion of the Canton Viaduct on July 28, 1835. The New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad obtained control of the Boston and Providence Railroad in 1893. The MBTA acquired the line between Boston and the Massachusetts
border in 1973. Today, in addition to carrying local commuter rail service, the line carries Amtrak's Northeast Corridor service between Boston and Washington.
Interior three tracks are carried on a brick arch built circa 1880. On both sides of the brick arch, the bridge has been widened by constructing a one-track wide concrete arch with granite voussoirs, keystone, and coping."
