I can attest to the fact that the Englewood Flyover was a necessity. I've ridden Amtrak from Michigan dozens of times, and we've waited for 15-10 minutes if not more. This is especially true during rush hours

Casey, Great photo and comments; thanks! I am glad to see some investment on improvement here- we need so much more and a total change of US mentality. In Europe or modern Asia, this is hardly anything to create as an improvement or design for rail transport - they are way, way ahead of us and we are still way, way behind.

Most interesting photo, Casey. What is the red-orange area used for ??

Future tracking? It does retain some water, before ballasting.

AMAZING PHOTO!! That appears to be the westbound Lake Shore Limited passing underneath.

I do believe that the third space is for future expansion, and possibly for major maintenance if needed. Say one track needs to be fully redone, they can run a full track through that third bridge with little to no delays involved.
