N. 45th Street Bridge
Posted August 28, 2020, by Matt Lohry

It appears that this bridge was fully rehabilitated in probably 2015, including new guard rails inside the girders, a new deck, and a new paint job. The rails are bright blue and don't overwhelm the girders. I'm happy to see that a highway bridge like this still exists in this very urban setting.

Looks like this may be a bridge from a former Milwaukee Road Spur?
