MCER - East Street Overpass
1901 grade separation on a section of shared right-of-way between the former B&A Ware River Branch, which occupied the two eastern spans, and the B&M Central Massachusetts Branch (later the Wheelwright Branch), which occupied the two western spans. The former B&M spans were built by Boston Bridge Works. Although built of the same design in the same year; the bridges differ subtly from one another. All tracks are currently operated by the Massachusetts Central Railroad, which operates the Ware River Branch from Palmer to Barre.
