BNSF - Salt Fork Arkansas River Bridge
Posted June 10, 2020, by Viaduck

The recent January 2020 picture demonstrates that this bridge remains one of the last two single-track bottlenecks on BNSF's Southern Transcon, along with the bridge at Sibley, MO. The grading for the new East approach for a second bridge has been in place since at least 2008.
