Riverview Blvd. NS RR Overpass
Posted September 14, 2010, by Matthew Lohry

It looks to me as if there never was a second span--my guess is that the railroad owns right-of-way on that side and built the piers and abutments to accept a second span if they ever wanted to add one, but it didn't happen. I've seen a few bridges where this was the case.

When I was growing up I can remember riding in the back seat of my uncle and aunt's car, on the way to the Katz Drug Store at the corner of Riverview and Halls Ferry Circle, and passed by this bridge. The piers and abutments were painted in coral color. It looks like there may have been two spans here at the time it was built. Would any historians out there know why?

This bridge carries the Norfolk Southern railroad.
