Bridge Conditions at Delco Area Train Station

I was on an assignment for my college campus news, taking photos at a railroad station on Nov. 19 for a Septa story. The assigment was to take photos of the train cars, people boarding and getting off of the train.

While waiting for the train, I was taking photos of other subjects and the bridge going over the tracks was of particular interest. I noticed that the bridge had piles of bricks used as added support going across under both lanes.

It brought to mind the infrastructure problem across America, with many such structures and roads needing serious repair.

I’ve been told that this particular bridge in on a list for some major work, although I don’t know when that will happen. I haven’t been on a Septa train in a long time, so I’m not usually in the area of the station. It shocked me to see just how bad the bridge looks when viewed from the parking lot.
