Portageville Rail Bridge project reaches a milestone
 
Steel construction has begun on the main arch span of the Portageville Rail Bridge that crosses the Genesee River in Letchworth State Park in Portageville, NY.

I've only seen pics on Facebook.
 
The concrete piers/abutments are done. They are assembling the arch now.
 
It's hard to get pics because the whole area is closed off now. The trails to the Upper falls have been closed for re-construction.
 
Trains should be going over the new bridge in November!
 
The road under the bridge should re-open late 2018.
