Also learned that this bridge replaced the previous structure that was there and that the city gave Mo Pac the North Street land that also had a viaduct over the tracks.

I'm curious about the three old railroad bridges that are in this area. One is directly besides this bridge and runs perpendicular to the Baring Cross tracks. Two others are under the Cantrell Road Bridge down the street around Gill St. Prob old Rock Island spurs or something.
