Starrucca Viaduct

Located in Lanesboro PA, this is a spectacular piece of stonework. According to a nearby sign: "Built in 1847-48 by the Erie R.R. it is 1200 ft. long, 110 ft. high, 30 ft. wide at top."

These pictures were taken on two trips to the viaduct, one in October of 2003, and again the following April. The viaduct runs North-South and is photogenic from any direction. I hope you enjoy the show.

Suggestions are welcome - just send me an email.

Viaduct—Wide View

Taken, I believe, from "Viaduct Road" this is a good distant view. I'd like to get a better shot showing the length, but haven't yet found the right vantage point.
