CN - Fox River Bridge

I believe that Robert was referring to the category that was assigned to the bridge, not the location. There is no dispute that this is the correct bridge, location, and it is the Fox River--however, the category that was previously assigned was the Fox River that passes between Green Bay and Appleton--Wisconsin has 2 Fox Rivers, which makes things confusing. This Fox River originates just north of Waukesha and passes through Burlington and down into Illinois. Just wanted to clear things up.

As this original photographer of the image shown I can guarantee that it is just south of Burlington, WI and is not in Illinois. While in high school in the late 1990s I worked for a horse farm that owned the land which is how I had access to get that picture.

Pay no attention to the comment above. This is CN Bridge 69.61 in Racine County, WI

This is listed under the wrong Fox River. This belongs under Fox River - Illinois:

>>Fox River

Illinois

This river (not to be confused with the similarly-named `Fox River' in Northeast Wisconsin) begins west of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and flows to Ottawa, Illinois.<<
