Abandoned bridges on the "PP-OO" in Utah
« on: April 05, 2021, 06:15:02 AM »

I've found a old abandoned bridge along the Northern route of the PP-OO Southwest of Vernal, UT.

I've also found where one old bridge & possibly another even older bridge once were on the Northern PP-OO alignment Southeast of Ft. Duchesne, UT.


& a couple more bridge abutments, along the "PP-OO", between Woodside, UT & Price, UT

In mapping out the section of the "PP-OO" between Price, UT, to Salt Lake City, UT, I think that I found one old bridge & some more old bridge abutments that were on different alignments of the "PP-OO", either pre, or post 1919, near Castle Gate, UT.

Another possible former alignment of the "PP-OO" that's now being used by the railroad. The "1919 Official Automobile Blue Book" did not mention this crossing.

Another bridge crossing, that's now being used by the railroad, North of Royal, UT.

What on earth is the "PP-OO", other than something that's cool and legal in 49 states?
