Description 

Former bridge on the Lehigh Valley Railroad freight mainline from Ithaca to Geneva. It was abandoned by Conrail in 1976, but became part of the present Finger Lakes Railroad. Although the tracks are in place, they are rarely used, and then only to store unused freight cars a little further south along the line.
