Does anybody here live in the Ithaca area? I am trying to get pictures of every abandoned railroad bridge in NY, and I don't have a picture of this one yet .... even though I bicycled over it. They're starting construction on Monday, so if you don't go get a picture Sunday, it might be too late.

I went by there this past Wednesday on the way to the vet school. The bridge is partially apart as it looks like they are cutting it up in situ rather than trying to lift it off its base. I'll be by there again mid-week but I will not be surprised if it is completely gone. BTW, with the road under the bridge closed, traffic is a real mess in that area.

No, the roadbed was on the other side, between the depot and the creek.
