WSOR - WI136 Overpass

Photos 

South Elevation

This bridge was built by the Chicago & Northwestern Railway in 1899. It shares many features with other bridges along this right-of-way that once ran from Madison to Elroy. Many of the stone arch bridges (Goette Road, Viaduct Road) and other plate girder deck bridges (Baraboo Street Bridge) appear to use limestone that was quarried from the same place.
