Potomac River Railroad Bridge

This is one of the oldest surviving structures across the Potomac at Washington. The present bridge was built in 1901. A series of steel plate girders and a central truss structure mark the bridge. It carries railroad traffic between Virginia and Washington and is part of the northeast corridor for Amtrak passenger service.
