1927 narrow underpass

This is on Roy Martin Road in Gray TN (36.410614, -82.458446).  This must have replaced an earlier timber supported Clinchfield pass over the road (the line came through here around 1908), but, in 1927, there still wasn’t enough traffic on this still relatively quiet road to justify two lanes.  Gray, btw, was once called Gray Station, since there was a train station located about where the Citi telemarketing building is now.  This is looking north.  Further on, this road descends through a virtual tunnel of trees.  It’s really pretty.  The road comes out at Bobby Hicks Highway, by the new Credit Union building.
