Potomac Riverconnecting Bloomington, Marylandto Mineral County, West Virginia. The sandstone railroad bridge features three full center arches, each with a 56 foot (17 m) span and a 28 foot (8.5 m) rise.
When built in 1851, it carried a double track of the original
Baltimore and Ohio Railroadmain line. In 1916 the viaduct was widened to accommodate two more tracks. The addition is a Melan-type reinforced concretebridge of identical configuration built against the south face of the original stone bridge. As the state boundary follows the southern bank of the Potomac, nearly all of the bridge is located in Garrett County, Maryland.
The Bloomington Viaduct was listed on the
National Register of Historic Placeson November 21, 1976.
