Structure was constructed by IDOT from precast culvert sections about 2000 to provide access to the state property north of bridge.

The 1950 topo shows an unimproved dead end road crossing here, leading to an outbuilding.

This is not abandoned Route 66. This was an old gravel road that led north south; connecting to old route 66. It was abandoned when the later alignment of Route 66 came about.

Let me know if you need further information on this.
