This bridge is very much in use on a daily basis. Built by the Reading RR interesting one pier is date stamped 1920 but the other is 1926. After Apr 1976 the line became part of Conrail and is now operated by the Norfolk Southern. Line sees a healthy dose of mixed freight and intermodal with local traffic on either end along with the interchange at Mount Holly Springs to the Gettysburg Northern Railroad.
