A bit over 100 years old, this viaduct spans a wide valley over the Tunkhannock Creek. Saved the railroad miles and time, and it is awesome to view. Trains are much longer now but less frequent, so you aren't likely to see a train crossing the bridge.

being a bridge aficionado I can tell you this is a massive and totally impressive man-made structure. when you consider the age of the bridge along with how many workers and man-hours were necessary to build this bridge, you will agree! I highly recommend a visit. also, as a side note the locals will tell you there is a very nice swimming hole down below. plan a picnic. just remember be kind- when you leave, the ONLY thing you should leave behind is your footprints. ENJOY!

Worthwhile checking out. When we got here we weren't sure where to go for the best view. We asked a local who directed us to a spot on route 11. Take your time and drive around a bit. It's interesting to view from all vantage points. Perhaps most interesting is the view up close directly underneath the structure. If you like architecture and trains you won't want to miss this.

Beautiful bridge that was constructed over one hundred years ago with manual labor. Built to last a lifetime!
