Information from the 1902 Bridge & Building Book for the Western Division, Wabash Railroad Co.
The original bridge had been replaced and raised over the years, in order to provide more clearance for hi-cube boxcars & stack trains on the ATSF mainline.
The north abutment has been essentially removed, and on top of the old right-of-way sits an enclosed shelter for viewing train traffic on the BNSF mainline running from Kansas City to Chicago.
