CSX - Triple Crossing Viaduct
Posted July 14, 2015, by Zane A. Winyard (winyard [dot] zane [at] gmail [dot] com)

The streetview map is wrong.

What is there is 9th street looking at the CSX viaduct with an abandoned track going under it.

It should be on I-95 looking towards the city on the southbound side. you should see the viaduct with a train sitting under it after having crossed the river.

Please change it. Thank you.
