Description 

This is a railroad bridge that carries the modern day Falls Road Railroad over Market Street in the City of Lockport. This bridge is very close to (almost adjacent to) the Falls Road Rail Road trestle (commonly called the "upside Down Bridge) over the Erie Canal. In fact there's only a few feet of solid ground between this bridge and the "Upside Down Bridge".
