Delaware & Hudson Bridge over I-90
Posted March 19, 2019, by Brendan Edward Delay (brendandelay [at] ameritech [dot] net)

I wonder if the rail traffic and loads are lower than the 1950's when it was built?

Could it be the D & H markings are there because it is original paint, now 64 years old? Or maybe some paint patching was done in the interim. The bridge girders over Interstate 90 are suspended with high clearance for truck trailers, which means no accidents due to insufficient clearance or high trucks.

This bridge is still in use . It still has the identification sign facing I90 traffic that says "D&H RR". Amazing!!
