Just remembered this one: I-35 over a rail line over 23rd st in OKC.

??  I-35 goes under 23rd Street.

Oopsie, I-235. Been a while since I lived there.

Ah, cool.  Gotcha.  I've never taken I-235 through there.

It might be worth mentioning that there is a near miss just north of there, with the same road and railroad track, near 50th st. The 50th st bridge is just feet away from going over the RR bridge over 235.

Hmmm... what about something like this? Yes, it's part of a freeway interchange, but the CSX rail line goes right through the middle of it.

I'm not sure if any of the bridges are actually over another bridge there.  Hmmmm....  This one at least comes really close.

In Syracuse, there's a near miss as I-81 passes over tracks by Destiny USA and Park St passes underneath them between I-81 and NY 370 and other ramp spaghetti.

Houston has a new, interesting one. Here's a bridge over a pedestrian bridge going in the same direction:

Interesting!  That one got me thinking about the catwalk under the New River Gorge Bridge, and if that would count as a "Bridge over a Bridge".  (Or maybe it is just kind of a "double decker bridge").  (It is interesting nevertheless).

Looks like a new thread:  Bridges under Bridges.

This reminds me of the time I took some friends on a camping trip so that they could see the New River Gorge Bridge up close and personal.  The original observation deck was still in use, and we were surprised to see a fellow free-scaling across the eastern arch structure.  We probably stayed for an hour watching.  It was fun trying to negotiate all of the hairpins on (then) WV-82 under the bridge in my 1985 Pontiac Catalina, which required three-point turns in several of the curves.

The US 1/301 Lee Bridge in Richmond also has a pedestrian bridge hanging underneath it from its north end to Belle Isle.

I-294 over both US 20 [Lake St.] and IL 64 [North Ave.] in Northlake IL. The Lake st./20 bridge was first built in the 1930's and was a truss design, replaced a few years ago with plain bridge. Was amazed at it as a kid and now I go over it to work daily.
