The documentation of dormant bridges in Chicago continues. [first post here]
I drive by two interesting railway bridges on the way to Chinatown – both on Amtrak property. While I wait to hear back from Amtrak PR about permission for a formal shoot, I’ve posted some images shot from afar.
This is probably the most ambitious of the bridges I’ve seen here so far, with massive concrete counterweights and a control room [ripe for loft conversion?] perched atop the girder that travels vertically along the two towers. It would be fantastic to see this in action.
