Thanks for the compliment,Dana and Kay.I'll get down that way after the new year and check this arch bridge out.It puzzles the hell out of me being that there might have possibly been a road there at one time.

Dana and Kay,This is the right location.You have the street view which helps.If you go back up Circle Rd and look to the left you can see the arch bridge down the stone path.Also it has a gate on it so I don't know why it's gated.You can see the gate if you enlarge the picture on street view.Sure looks like one well built bridge from what I see.

Dana and kay,the arch bridge is actually on the other side of the electric substation on Broad St.On the other side of the electric substation the road turns into Circle Rd.That's where the arch bridge is.Follow the railroad tracks toward reading and you'll see it.What you are actually looking at is an access road for N/S.
