WSOR - Walnut Street Overpass
Posted February 11, 2017, by David Thompson (davidthompson20 [at] aol [dot] com)

The concrete base of this bridge looks seriously compromised in Jan. of 2017. A lot of traffic goes under this bridge, while locomotives use one of the two tracks on the bridge, at the same time that hopper cars are parked on it. Is this bridge safe?
