Topo maps show the road going beneath the RR so I imagine this is a "tunnel" or culvert.

The 1943 Berryman 15' map does not show this rail. Looking at the bridge to the west it seems likely that this crossing was built in the last 75 years. Did the railroad not come to Steelville until that late?

I followed the BNSF rail both ways to Rte 19 and MO-49 crossings and see it must be abandoned due to the rail being paved over at route crossings both ways.If this is true then there's a lot of rail abandoned.

Satellite view shows this as a grade crossing, no bridge.
