West Sixth Street Railroad Underpass.  UTM:  17 513949E 3898702N This underpass was completed between 1950 and 1953.  It provided direct access to Elmwood Cemetery, a major publicly-owned burial ground.   In terms of style, the structure is essentially Classical Revival with scrolled brackets on the side, arched colonnades at the base, and balustrades along the edge of the tracks.   The western half of the bridge was removed in the 1970s when an even higher bridge was constructed.

 

The older bridge is the one below.
