Aldo,just saw the video on this tunnel on you-tube and have to agree.Looks like a lost cause trying to go in this one.Of course it doesn't hurt to hunt for other tunnels and bridges while in this area that might not be on bridgehunters.

This tunnel is a rail tunnel that is filled in and is not open.

The tunnel goes out close to union station. The mononglahelA railroad

Then goes out toward Allison. There are two stone arch bridges that are still there built around the same time
