this is kind of a neat bridge. easy to get to from hwy 300. part of a hiking trail at pinnacle mountain. it is a beautiful walk as you approach as well. old hwy 300 is being slowly swallowed by nature.

I would guess that the bridge is from around 1920 or later. It is riveted so it wouldn't be much older than that. Illinois was the stamp for the rolling mill where the steel was manufactured. They were one of the more prominent steel mills in that era.

Does anyone have any information on when this bridge was built? I've looked online a few times and can't seem to find anything. I guess the designer was Illinois S-USA based on the stamps I've seen on the bridge. I'm going to add a few more pictures of the bridge detail.

Visited this bridge 4 Feb '07. It can be best seen from the modern bridge 50 yds. upstream on Hwy 300. There is a locked gate on either side to restrict driving close to it, but you can pull off the road to park on the access and walk 50 yds. to cross over it. Can get good photos from the under the modern bridge.
