Looking for a picture of a Lehigh Valley bridge
Posted by Leo_Ames on Friday, June 30, 2023 4:18 AM

I got curious last Sunday about these big abutments near where LV's Lodi station in the Finger Lakes region was located. I wondered if anyone perhaps knew of a picture of the structure and about when it was removed?

I'm guessing the early years of Conrail was when it was abandoned and removed to increase highway clearances, but the last topographical map on the Historic Aerials site is from 1960 with nothing else until the 2010's.

While not a great picture from my dash camera, it shows what's left as well as the coordinates of the spot.

Here is a topo map from 1986 that shows the line abandoned.

Here is the USGS index for all editions of all topo maps.
