CSX - Germantown Overpass

People complain about the width of this bridge and actually blame “ them” for building the viaduct too small by accident

.

It does not occur to them that the B&O architects could not possibly foresee the invention of the automobile and at the time of the construction all they had was men on horses or occasional horse and wagon.

Hello Bridge Hunger! This bridge is located in my home town and the pic is great. Your website is super cool and extremely informative. I've lived in Maryland my whole life and had no idea there were so many bridges in our little state. My folks live near the Cabin John bridge and yours is the best shot of it I've ever seen. Great work!!
