Absolutely beautiful! If I'm ever in VA I'll go out of my way to see this bridge in person. Let's just hope some idiot in an over-loaded truck doesn't try to drive across it.
This is definitely a great find - complete with Phoenix columns.
Yes......According to information I found on a Virginia Historic Bridge web site(that has since disappeared), this was originally a railroad bridge. It is a truly magnificent span.
This is a beautiful bridge. Did it start out as a railroad bridge ? Judging by the photos of the underside it looks like it was converted to vehicle use .
