CMR - North Lindbergh Boulevard Overpass

Photos 

The north face

All of my photos were taken from the western shoulder along southbound Lindbergh Boulevard. The bridge is just south of the Page Avenue interchange.

An EF1 tornado tore through this area in April 1998. I am standing in the path taken by that tornado.

The original rail road was the rock island

North Lindbergh Blvd. CM RR Bridge

The railroad bridge I photographed did have a logo for the Southern Pacific Lines on the center pier. (The high-res version of the first picture in the sequence may show that)

The Central Midland Railway (CM RR) now operates on this right-of-way. The railroad's eastern terminus is the railroad yard located under Ashby Road in St. Louis County (accessed from Warson Road), then runs west towards its western terminus in central Missouri.

East of the CM RR yard and proceeding east towards Hall Street (eastern fringes of St. Louis City) the railroad is operated by St. Louis' Terminal Railroad Association (TRRA).

To which railroad did this bridge belong? Just curious, because it looks like the route Rock Island used to use toreach St. Louis.
