from "eastern iowa railpics"--Kate Shelley High Bridge

A visit to the Kate Shelley High Bridge in Boone, Iowa--August 11, 2010. 
The view is breath-taking.

Old span....

New span.

Both spans.

Westbound coal train crossing the new span. Speed limit
on the new span goes up to 60 mph. The old metal span
[now closed], used to have a speed limit of 20mph.
New Kate Shelley was completed in 2009.
