Hidden Abandoned Railroad Bridge

August 11, 2019


Hello ladies and gentleman, Today I’m over here Just a block south of the Miami international airport, you can see the control tower and there you can see the ballast from the former track that used to be there. Here we see an abandoned railroad bridge Right now I’m facing north as you can see the rails were pulled. And then this is where the track is to go into you can see there’s no evidence. No cross ties nothing of that nature and the bridge itself looks pretty sturdy, so It’s a home for iguanas now see if I can give you a look at the bottom Okay So now we’re going to attempt to walk on the bridge itself It’s pretty sturdy Here you can see an old railroad spike This here would be facing West facing North Facing East I saw three iguanas when I got here. You can just smell the old on this bridge amazing trees growing on it So this would be the north side of the bridge facing south And this would be the western side of the bridge you can see it used to be owned by CSX Now there’s, let’s see what we got here. It’s buried fiber-optic cables okay. Let’s see what this, Oh, iguana jumped into the water there. Nice, just give you a quick shot of the ballast over here. Oh look it’s an iguana right there Man they run quick okay, so yeah, and that overpass there is northwest 7th street, and here’s a shot of the bridge from the distance Alright you guys please subscribe or like thank you for viewing over and out

    when did they abandon this

    Another good find! The earliest map I find has that bridge showing up by 1962, so it would have been SAL built. And again, you gotta keep a wrench or some pliers with you for the signs!
