Grace Railroad Bridge

Apparently, it's a bridge that carries the 26,000 foot penstock of the Grace power plant complex. So, yeah - it's an aquaduct.

It is a flume for a power plant located several miles south and west of the location. I think it's in the process of being decommissioned and the dam(s) removed to restore the river.

This does not appear to be a railroad bridge. I believe it is an aqueduct.
