Are you sure it wasn't the next bend to the south? That would have been the location of Conway station, and perhaps it was a pedestrian underpass. There was actually a streetcar line that ran down the hillside, crossed the river (a pillar is still there in the river), crossed under the high trestle of the NYNH&H, and ran to Conway.

I didn't mark down the coordinates, but my marker for it was a tree that extends over the water quite a bit near the north end of the river the bank extending into the river on the other side opposite the tunnel portal, just where the marker is placed. For an underpass, the height of the bore wouldn't make sense, but the width would. It could've been that streetcar line, but it wasn't necessarily near the old bridge pier (which by this time is looking about ready to collapse into the water).
