About Me 

I want to thank all of those, past,present, and future, that update or add info to the bridges I post. It means a lot to me to see the historic bridges,tunnels, culverts, viaducts, etc. have a place to be remembered and I like to contribute what I can. I am not an expert on bridges as you can see, but I do try to post what limited info I do have.

Interesting bridge.But who coined Hawk's Nest for this area is what I am wondering?

Here is a picture of the dingus who likes destroying beatuiful bridges in the name of stupidity. http://wdrb.images.worldnow.com/images/9727642_G.jpg

It is easy. She must have come from Swift's training program that this is a passing grade to the teacher.

Another interesting structure with a junction joining on the bridge. One of my favorite parts of my Pittsburgh Mainlines DVD.

Posted March 19, 2017

I got a DVD of railroad action in Pittsburgh in the days prior to the combined NS/CSX takeover of Conrail and this bridge was featured early on in the DVD.

Interesting bridge as the rails are recessed into the girder structure. I can't figure out why it was designed that way in the first place, but it makes for an interesting video seeing the trains look like they are sinking.

Beautiful bridge, and I think closing it to vehicle traffic was smart to prevent a terrorist attack. I want to keep locations looking nice, and they did the right thing to build a new bridge and keep the old one for pedestrian and cycling traffic

Amazing how long that temporary roadway stayed in place. I wonder if Alaska didn't care to replace this bridge, and how many Presidents that thing survived through (LBJ,Nixon,Ford,Carter,Reagan,Bush 41, Clinton,and Bush 43.) That is an amazing feat to last 8 Presidents.

It is amazing at the major films that were filmed there.

Nice photo Dave. Thanks for the add.

It is sad to see them go, but they were old and they were falling apart also. One of these tunnels had some rubble come off and it closed the line for 24 hours. Now with the three tracks, the freight can move all the time just about.

This bridge appears to be on its last legs as it has a full-time stop light to keep traffic at a minimum. A shame it is coming to that

I have heard rumors that the old haul road may be opened up to driving one day, but this bridge crosses the haul road. That is what it looks like they are getting to do if that is the case. I will be one sad person if they do this as it will destroy the fishing in the area. Though if they would barricade the dip off to traffic where Keffler Kamp (Campsite N) resided, that might stop a lot of destructive fishing if they keep the end where the old complex sat shut down from traffic.

I would like to what going around this bridge as some construction crew, I assuming the Morgan County Highway crew, has been clear-cutting down to this bridge alongside the road. The trees and stuff have been cleared out on 3 of the 4 sides around this bridge and it is a wide path. If anyone knows what is going on around there, I would like to know as the whole countryside is torn up and is rougher than I'll get out in there.

Google Streetview is broken on a lot of bridges here.I don't know what caused this, but I thought this was an apporiate place to post this message.

Posted October 31, 2015

I will update the status to lost as it is already virtually destroyed.
