US 30 Bridge
Posted February 14, 2009, by J.R. Manning (thekitchenguy [at] sbcglobal [dot] net)

David, where exactly is this bridge located? It appears to be where US 30 runs parallel to the UPRR, with the C&S going over both. I seem to remember something like this scene on the southwest side of Cheyenne, near the I-80/I-25 interchange.
