South Springview Railroad Overpass
Posted March 13, 2017, by Dan (1992sentrase [at] gmail [dot] com)

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).
