Funky Underpass
Posted By: reh321, 07-11-2018, 01:09 PM

I took this picture around 2000 .... I had no idea why such a strange structure would exist. Later I learned that one defunct railroad, known as the Erie-Lackawanna, had two sets of tracks that came together near here, but they came in at different levels, and thus the structure of this underpass. Several years later the state closed this road for several months, and when it was reopened the underpass {and the dip in the road to accommodate it} was gone.

I became serious about photography because of my interest in railroads. Even as a college student I saw things changing, so I set out to "record today before tomorrow comes and everything changes".
