Eastward View of Navigational Advisory
The trestle can be seen behind the sign. It begs the question of the purpose of the sign, west of the trestle, when so few boats have access to the waterway and no agency has shown any interest in enforcement.
Northeast bank of FEC trestle
The iron strap, presumably from a box car, is at the lower left of the photo. It was placed there after being removed from the creek. The discarded concrete flotsam is to the right of the photo.
Southeastern View of FEC Trestle
Discarded concrete ties litter the southeastern bank of the trestle.
Northwest Bank of FEC Trestle
The iron strap is visible on the right after being removed from the creek.
Southwestern View of FEC Trestle
