MC&C - Moore's Junction Overpass

The overpass is still there. I pass by almost every day.

Definitely intact, tho the Western face seems nicer than the Eastern.

you're right on the money there Arthur... It's definitely still extant.

I believe I located this bridge by virtually searching on google street view. It appears just off the road at these coordinates:

39.3873469, -81.4954384

It appears still intact on the latest google street view.

Yes I realized that after I posted this. I've been scanning the maps near that Bender Rd as well, trying to see where the old railroad track was. I would be very interested in photographing this if it still intact.

Looking at Google Earth, that building has been there since about 2006. Unfortunately, I cannot get a good view to find such a small arch that blends in to the surroundings. I believe it is likely still there, however I cannot tell for sure.

Does anyone know if this still exists? The coordinates now show a large business on this site called "United Rentals." I fear it may have been demolished.

The arch is just a few hundred feet west of route 7 behind the big Leasco building....I first noticed it several years ago and thought it had something to do with the railroad.....

I got the coordinates from the geotag on the Flickr page. They're way off, but I could not find it in bing bird's eye either.

How did you deduce the location on the map?
