Columbus, Piqua & Indiana Railroad Overpasses

Columbus, Piqua & Indiana Railroad Overpasses

A series of four overpasses were constructed for the Columbus, Piqua & Indiana Railroad in Covington, Ohio.


The Columbus, Piqua & Indiana Railroad between Columbus, Ohio, and Union City, Indiana opened on March 25, 1859. The railroad eventually became part of the Pennsylvania Railroad and then Conrail before becoming abandoned in 1983.

Adrian Miller requested to tear down the Wall Street overpass on May 1, 2008, with the goal to keep the stones for personal use. 2 The North Mill Street overpass, after being excavated around for dirt, was given a bridge inspection in the spring of 2009. The underpass has since been closed to traffic.
