Hazard Yard South Tunnel

This is the south portal of the tunnel that passes through a ridge south of Hazard Yard.  The tunnel is about 450′ long.

The box truss trestle passes over the North Fork of the Kentucky River.  Vandals (grrrr) have relieved the bridge of its maker/date plate.  However, the bridge resembles others on this line that were made by Virginia Bridge and Iron Company in Roanoke in 1912.
