Meredith Tunnel.

Meredith Tunnel

This 1,200-foot tunnel is part of the Marion County Rail Trail. It burrows beneath Speedway Avenue, Morgantown Avenue, and Suncrest Boulevard. The tunnel was built in 1914 by the Monongahela Railroad. The beginning of the rail trail is off of Winfield Street.

[Jeremy, 10/03/2020]

Abandoned tunnels have their risk-taking fans, but installed lighting, paved pathways, and dedicated parking lots can nudge a tunnel into the attraction realm for whole families.
