It’s been a good day today. The Transportation Enhancement program will be sticking around for another six months thanks to the Senate.

I thought I’d share photos of these beautiful transportation resources in celebration. The Keystone Arch bridges in Middlefield, Massachusetts are remarkable, entirely dry-laid stone edifices built to carry the Western Railroad over the Westfield River. These soaring arches were constructed in 1840 and carried rail traffic for over 100 years. Today, they stand sentinel over Massachusetts’ first-designated Wild and Scenic River on a bypassed section of the original 1840 railroad grade, which serves as an unbelievable trail for viewing the splendor of nature and man-made marvels side-by-side. Providing access to natural and architectural treasures like these is what the Transportation Enhancements program is all about, and it can continue to bring the American public closer to our vast and unique country as long as we continue to support it.
