There was an identical bridge over the Bayou St. John East of this down the line.
The bridge was near the Metairie Cemetery, so the pin is in the correct location. 1939 map shows the railroad simply as "Southern".
There are also a couple of other potential locations further down Pontchartrain Expressway where RRs cross.
New Basin Canal was filled in during the late 1940s. Pontchartrain Expressway is located over part of it; much of the rest is a green space. I moved the coordinates to the RR crossing of Pontchartrain Expressway, since that appears to be the most likely location.
