CSX- Binfield Railroad Overpass

In reading the status of the Binfield Overpass.. it says closed to all traffic. If this refers to the bridge as it now stands that is not the case. I drove across it the day I visited last Summer and I saw many others doing the same.

South Springview Railroad Overpass

About a mile, give or take, down the CSX mainline is another wooden bridge on South Springview Road. You can see it from the Binfield Road railroad overpass. I do know of a wooden bridge built in the 1940's on East Harper Avenue in Maryville, Tennessee. It is over the Norfolk Southern right-of-way.

Just wanted you to know that the Binfield Railroad Overpass was rebuilt and reopened about a year or two ago (maybe late 2010 or early 2011).
