Nice, well hidden two arch stone culvert

Stone culvert, Ellicott City, Maryland

I found this stone culvert on the historic National Road, just east of historic Elicott City, Maryland. It takes Frederick Road, as the National Road is call there, over a small tributary to the Patapsco River. The road has been widened, so only one face of the culvert remains - the one facing the Patapsco. The culvert is just west of the gas station - once you start looking for a small culvert, it shouldn't be hard to miss.

There are at least four other stone bridges and culverts on the National Road in Howard County. They've all been modified, some moreso than others, but it's still exciting to see them in use. I'll deal with them more at a later date.
