Robert, the tunnel is fine/was looking at getting worked on in 2015, apparently, but the steel stringer replaced a 1950s tee beam per the NBI.

The NBI indicates a modern bridge here, but from what I understand, the trail goes through an old railroad tunnel. Are there some locals here who could chime in?
