Visit to Tunnel #3 at Eugene
Tunnel #3 is an Amazing Rock Island Feature
Tunnel #3 at Eugene is the longest tunnel (1667 feet) on the Rock Island Corridor. A group of visitors from Rails to Trails Conservancy recently visited the tunnel on their bicycle trek across Missouri on the Katy Trail. Personnel from Ameren Missouri, the current owner of the corridor were gracious enough to allow the visit.
The corridor is currently in the rail banking process between MO State Parks and Ameren. It is not open to the public. See additional information regarding the visit here.
