Junction Bridge drawing.
Webmaster's note: The photo that was here has been incorporated into the main site.
This bridge is amazing to get night shots of, it's located in the river market and the lighting is amazing. Sure there's some graffiti on it, but it adds to the effect.
Yes the lift span is in the raised position and is accessed via elevators at either end. The renovation work included a new concrete deck ,guard rails, and the afore mentioned elevators. The bridge is monitored by security cameras and is wi-fi hot spot.
Can anyone explain to me...is the bridge section lifted? I'd love to get some information on the restoration and if they are using the 'upper deck'.
That is a fantastic night shot John !
Hey Max, yes Choctaw bridge & Rock Island are one and the same.
this bridge Fred and Wayne call the "Choctaw" bridge, is this the Rock Island bridge beside the Clinton library?
can anyone clear that up?
They really did a great job on the bridge. Go see it as soon as you are able, it is well worth the trip.
Hopefully they will start on the Choctaw soon.
Sensational photographs of the Junction Bridge. Hope to get across it real soon. Love the pedestrian connection between LR & NLR. Will be great when the Choctaw lift span is rehabed in the same manner.
