Fossil in Bridge Support

This fossil is in the support of the Illinois Central 14th Street Railroad Bridge in Clarksville, Indiana near the Falls of the Ohio State Park.

I find this fossil most interesting because I am not sure what it is but it looks like a crinoid stem on its side and the brown looking arms look like part of its calyx. Maybe it is a squished coral or sponge.
