Rail Bridge is famous on a New National list
It's number 11.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation put it on the list due to the construction of the historic bridge. The Rail Bridge is currently older than the Eiffel Tower and the way the structure was made could probably have it last another 300 years.
Is the Historic National endangered list a real thing? Yes, it is and while the bridge made number 11, other entries include Nashville's Music Row, The James R Thompson centre in Chicago and the Ancestral places of Southeast Utah. If you like to see the full list, you can click here.
So, as you are biking by the refinery and you drive under the bridge, you can be happy to know one of America's treasures is in your back yard.
There was some talk about destroying the bridge and building a new one in its place. Hopefully, those plans don't come to fruition.
Love riding the trail under the bridge.
