A former Tionesta Valley Railroad bridge in Sheffield, PA that was originally built in the late 19th Century and converted to road use in 1940 is being replaced.
 
Wow, more than a century old…
 
Here are some interesting photos from the last days of TV:

I never realized that Center St. is part of the old ROW.  Thanks for sharing.  We found a set of bridge abutments in Brookston along Watson Farm Rd. last Spring when we were detouring around the Blue Jay closure.  It is cool that they are still there after almost 70 years.
