19th century railway overpassfor the Simnas Road

Historical Buildings

Two time-worn supports of the remnants of the railway viaduct can be seen. The overpass of the Simnas road over the railway was for carrying traffic coming to Alytus from the west (Seirijai or Santaika). A curved embankment built up during railway construction in the 1890s allowed traffic to come of the viaduct. Because railway traffic between Alytus and Kaunas during the interwar period was not especially heavy, it is likely that the viaduct structure was dismantled during the Second Wold War.
The structure is listed on the Register of the Immovable Cultural Heritage of the Republic of Lithuania.
