Norfolk Southeren has 300 miles of bridges

NS posted
There’s more to Norfolk Southern’s 9,780 railroad bridges than meets the eye. From concrete structures spanning wide rivers to timber bridges crossing creeks, NS bridges cover 300 track miles and come in all styles, sizes, and construction materials. The 670 NS employees who work in bridge inspection, maintenance, and replacement ensure that these bridges safely connect trains to our customers and the communities we serve. There are 3 major NS bridge types: steel (74%), concrete (21%), and timber (5).
