Constructed in 1938-1939; refurbished in 2008-2009. The structure is waymarked as ( WM75H3 - Lincoln Avenue Underpasses ) and ( WMPCR - York Subway ) in other waymarking categories. Each of those waymarks is at a slightly different point in the overall structure.

This waypoint is closest to the rail lines, and is based on the 55.90 marker incorporated in the original concrete structure. The B.N.S.F. rail line carries unit coal trains as well as other freight; the bridge has the twin track main line plus one siding. Because of the curves to the east and west, a dedicated rail enthusiast can get some striking head-on photos from this location.

The gallery photos show both the north and south sides of the bridge and the adjacent depot (WMPCW); a west-bound empty rolled through during the course of taking the photos. Construction photos were reproduced from the local centennial history book.
