Description 

Unlike the other new one-track steel bridges built in 2020 on the St. Charles Air Line, this bridge is wide enough for two tracks, and it is a concrete bridge. That may be because Dearborn Street under the bridge no longer carries traffic, but is only a pedestrian underpass, so clearance was less critical.
