Abandoned bridge and piers from original alignment of 2803rd road. I contacted the local highway dept to inquire of the age or date it was abandoned and no one could recall. The south approach would have also crossed the I&M Canal and 5-6 piers still remain. One pier sits right along the I&M Canal Trail.
- Abandoned pony/through plate girder bridge over CSX RR (former Rock Island RR) on Abandoned alignment of 2803rd Rd
- LaSalle County, Illinois
- Abandoned but intact, approach piers remain
- Pony plate girder on concrete piers. The height of the piers suggest the approach would have been quite long.
