I don't want to disagree with any one but bridge next to the Ohio Turnpike (I80) is not in use and has not been for at least 15 years that I know of. There are dirt barricades at both ends and the deck is missing!

Just to make sure I''ll check it tomorrow when I drive by it on my way to Milwaukee!

That bridge is the old Toledo Terminal Railroad bridge over the Maumee River and is still in use.

Toledo Railroad Bridge next to I-80
Posted by 081552 on Saturday, August 07, 2004 4:40 PM
Returning to Los Angeles a few weeks ago, we drove by a railroad bridge next to I-80 in Toledo. We were travelling westbound and the bridge was on the north side of the Interstate. What railroad line used that bridge?

On another subject, can anyone recommend a railroad atlas? I'm still using Rand McNally's 'Handy Railroad Atlas' from the 80s and I need a newer atlas. Any ideas? I'd like all states in one book.
