CSX - I95 Overpass
Posted December 30, 2016, by Matt Lohry

After looking at the Google Earth Street View, this is the correct bridge shown in the photos, and the line is most definitely abandoned, per the satellite view. It is possible that the pony plate span was refurbished shortly prior to its closure, making it appear to be newer.

Hi--I believe this is the active line to SI (M&E/SIRT). If you look closely at the photo you can see that the bridge (not the trestle) is quite new.
