Old Route 66 Timber Creek Bridge
Posted July 5, 2015, by Patrick Cooney (pat [dot] cooney59 [at] outlook [dot] com)

In the process of being replaced, this bridge is currently closed and traffic is being routed on a detour over I-55 marked with signs labeled "Old" with the US 66 sign.

There is plans to extend a trail using the old lanes ROW from Shirley to McLean, with a bridge to be build adjacent to current site.
