Cross Kirkland Corridor - Kirkland Way Overpass
Posted July 7, 2019, by Robert Banel (bob [dot] banel [at] aol [dot] com)

The Northern Pacific Railroad sign on this bridge always intrigued me as kid way back in the 1960's. With it's Ying-Yang symbol and the "Yellowstone Route" sub-title fired up our imagination. We made plans to walk to Yellowstone Park following the train tracks. It was later painted over when Burlington Northern Railroad was formed out of Northern Pacific, Great Northern, and Burlington and other railroads in 1970's. Somebody out there has restored the sign. Thank you to that "Somebody".
