Description 

There is only one parapet wall on this bridge, on the northeast side. The creek it spans continues in a southwesterly direction and continues beneath buildings and tracks that used to be part of the Chicago Great Western Railroad. The southwestern side of the bridge is a building that used to be the operations center for the CGW Railroad yard and today houses the Hub City Railway Museum.
