River Road Tunnel - Taylor Twnp PA

This well-constructed stone and brick tunnel sits hidden near the Beaver River as you travel on River Road between Chewton and West Pittsburg in Taylor Township, Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. It is on the east side of the road just north of Tony Dytko Road. The narrow tunnel allows a small stream (which I believe is unnamed) to run from the hills above, underneath the railroad tracks, and on towards the Beaver River. The lone railroad track (a double track at one time) once carried the trains of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (B&O) on their way to and from distant Chicago, but now carry a once or twice daily run of the regional Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad (BPRR) – passing between Butler and New Castle.
