Rail Trail tunnel under active rail line

Postby lexon » Mon Feb 20, 2017 2:58 pm

A rail trail tunnel under Pan Am Railway line which also handles Amtrak. This tunnel connects two rail trails. Lots of steel work was needed. The tunnel is under a one track location just after a two rail section where we use to walk our bikes across.
In a residential are many people cross.
Those with three wheel bikes had a tough crossing.
