Sangamon Valley Trail - Old Jacksonville Road Overpass
Posted November 17, 2014, by Tim (springfieldbridges [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge was rehabilitated for trail used and future widening of Old Jack. Three of the spans were removed and replaced with a single span prefabricated truss over the roadway. Parts of the original bridge are still being used to cross over a small stream south of the roadway.
