This viaduct predates its big sister, the Tunkhannock Viaduct. Construction began in 1912 as part of a modernization of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western line from Clark Summit to Hallstead.
This 1848 railroad landmark is an internationally recognized structure of native stone that is noteworthy for its slender piers and arches. It is the largest bridge of its type in the world. Located off Rte. 92 to Rte. 171 in the village of Lanesboro.
Also called the Nicholson Bridge. It is the largest poured concrete railroad bridge in the world. This 2,375-foot long viaduct, completed in 1915, served as the centerpiece of an advanced improvement that greatly reduced grades and curvature along a 39-mile portion of the Lackawanna Railroad's New York-Bufallo line. The bridge continues to operate as a cargo carrying line. Located in the village of Nicholson, Rte. 11 or Rte. 92.
