Abandoned Railroad Bridge FEC South Miami Florida

August 24, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m here in Miami, FL right next to US1 in South Miami. This is an abandoned railroad bridge you’re looking at. It used to belong to the old Florida East Coast line that ran all the way to Homestead well, to the Keys, the Overseas Railroad. Then in around 1984 they took off the rails and the county replaced it with the metrorail which is the mass transportation system you see up top. Pardon the noise there’s a lot of cars behind me. So yeah, there hasn’t been any rails here since about the early 1980s. As you can see, the bridge is still pretty intact. I’m going to take you to the other side; hold on one second. Ok, this is what the other side looks like. Pretty nice place. They tell me this place is called Small Creek. And now this is what the top part would look like. see. As you can see, that’s where the rails used to run through that way. That’s facing South. Then this would be facing North. And as I said, that over there, is US1 This track ran all the way back to North Miami Florida East Coast all the way to St. Augustine at one point. Alright guys, Let me give you one last shot of the bridge again. Before I sign off. Alright. take care and bye bye

    Probably among the strongest pedestrian/cyclist bridges around. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I never knew that was a railway bridge. Is it now used as a pedestrian crossing?
