Homewood Railroad Overpass
Posted November 9, 2018, by Kevin Morris (slufoot1 [at] zoominternet [dot] net)

This bridge has been replaced with a newer span and is in service with Norfolk Southern Railway. It's now longer to span the widening of the Turnpike. It's been open for over a year now.

Drove the turnpike today it is gone. Victim of widening project most likely.
