The Gettysburg Daily again checked on the progress of the Reynolds Avenue Bridge, or the Railroad Cut Bridge on Saturday afternoon. The span is now completely gone. Since the railroad cut hasn’t been free from a span many times since the first bridge was constructed here in the 1880s, we decided to take more than a few pictures.
