Erie - CR 700 West Overpass (Eastbound)

Found and added a really good old photo from 2014 from this (south/eastbound/girder) side of these really cool set of railroad bridges. Wish they were still there... use to purposely drive out in the country just to look at these.

I have some photos of this somewhere before it was removed, will see if I can find them and post them. Used to drive under this really neat overpass regularly.
