Good eye, Clark.

I think it may be US 1 over Cobbs Creek at 39.975115,-75.280355

Check that street view.

I guess someone should inform the wikipedia folks since we agree that this image does not go with the bridge over east branch Indian Creek.

Looking at the railing on the photo it does not match the street view of either of these bridges. The photo on this page appears to be a third bridge.

The problem is ...

This bridge is right.

The photo is right.

The photo actually belongs however to the newly added City Line Bridge found here >.>

I found it listed in the 1992 NBI. Not in any others since.

As it was not listed prior a contributor figured the image surely must go to the one found here.

The name is right, it's just linked to the wrong NBI data.

SEPTA probably wouldn't lay track under a bridge in what appears to be a stream with a small weir, so I'd have to agree that the picture is incorrect.

Bridgehunter challenge: Name that bridge and put it on it's correct page.

Pretty sure the picture isn't the correct one...
