Got it Luke.Funny I never noticed this bridge before in my travels down that road.This bridge must be in good shape being that I haven't heard or read nothing about it in the local paper and I do know that Norfolk/Southern does take care of their rails and bridges.

Drop a streetview pin on the bridge over Willow Creek just south of here, rotate the view to the west.

Dana and Kay,there is a name that this rail line originally had but i can't remember it.I would have to research it and probably by doing that find out where this line ended past Lehigh Cement.
