The North Church Road viaduct over the old L.H.R. at Franklin has recently been dismantled and removed to make way for a new bridge. The viaduct was a steel superstructure built between 1927-1928 by the McClintic-Marshall Company to eliminate 4 grade crossings near the N.J. Zinc Company. In recent years it had been subject to extreme rusting and subsequent degradation. At one point, a covered stairway existed from the viaduct above to the L.H.R.'s Franklin Station below at grade level. The 2 pictures below were taken at approximately the same spot showing before and after.
