I've been doing this for a while now it seems. This is one of favorite hobbies, but anyways. I'm J.P. above you will find my photo blog link or where ever it lands on my bio page. Here is a link to my facebook if you would like to discuss stuff. Personally I'm from the Sunny Side of Louisville (southern Indiana), and I'm excited for the opening of the big 4 bridge across the Ohio.

Tree removal on the north side of the bridge has started.

Posted April 11, 2017

I followed the line several directions and added several tunnels and bridges. Some of them were already and active, and it looks like the tracks are still active as they branch off to a major coal plant.

Posted April 11, 2017

Based on Google Imagery the bridge has been removed, but I figured I would go ahead and add it.

Posted April 9, 2017

corrected it, thanks for pointing it out.

A gentlemen named Kevin Decker contacted me and He bought the land this bridge is on and provided me with the photos. He was able to verify that the bridge existed on his 70 plus acres because of this website.

Posted March 21, 2017

Construction starting soon.

Posted March 7, 2017

I don't really have time to research which railroad this was, but if you look closely you will see what I believe to be a pratt deck truss.

Posted March 6, 2017

Bridge will be gone by fall.

Posted February 21, 2017

This bridge was painted to look like JAWS by the city because of the number of trucks vs bridge accidents that have occurred here.

Posted February 2, 2017

Bridge still stands but deck is removed.

Posted January 31, 2017

Based on google imagery, bridge may have been left on dry land just south of the bridge. Maybe it was left to the property owner to reuse.

Posted January 28, 2017

Got to visit the bridge at night finally. The detail lighting on the truss is amazing.

Posted January 6, 2017

Based on google imagery it looks like the bridge is in place, google street view show it sitting waiting to be put into place after a fresh red paint was added. Thoughts or any info appreciated.

Posted December 30, 2016

I think the pictures that were last uploaded are of a different bridge, just a long shot.
