CSX - Westfield Viaduct
Steel & concrete viaduct that carried the former B&A mainline through downtown Westfield. The southern two spans appear to be a steel stringer/deck plate girder construction encased in concrete for the purposes of having a solid floor. The northernmost span was a through plate girder span carrying a loading platform for the adjacent railroad station. After being the site of numerous truck strikes, the bridge was replaced with a taller structure in 2008-10 as part of a major road improvement project in this area.
