I really like the Tunkhannock Viaduct. Out west, we have this reinforced concrete one over the Santa Ana River. It's about the same age, but not nearly as nice. Spans are 100 feet with a 50-foot span at each end for a total of 900 feet.

Interesting bridge, Matt. Like the Tunkhannock, it is showing it’s age, but still operating - they knew how to build things back then!!!

While the concrete bridges are impressive, I’m beginning to think the Starrucca is my favorite. There is a certain style to it - the tapered sides, the stone block... here is another pic I took. You can still see the drill marks when the stone blocks were quarried.
