There are actually 2 DOT numbers for this crossing. If you follow the DOT numbers from neighboring crossings, you'd end up with 365073U, but the crossing was closed on September 4, 1975, and was an underpass back then.

 

I have reason to believe that this crossing replaced the underpass, because it's using a numbering system that doesn't follow a particular track correctly. Both crossings were only 0.01 miles apart according to milepost numbers on both crossings.
