The West 71 St Street underpass viaduct construction project. Bridgeview Illinois. Sunday, September 16th, 2012.

Hi everyone!

Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page, from the city of Chicago Illinois USA.

I took this photograph this past Sunday, in southwest suburban Bridgeview Illinois.

Big changes are coming to West 71 st Street near the Toyota Park Stadium, as a railroad underpass viaduct is currently under construction at the site of the former West 71st Street railroad crossing at the Indiana Harbor Belt railroad tracks.

Many years of long train delays at this railroad interchange junction location with the Belt Railway of Chicago, will soon be a thing of the past. They still have a long way to go on this project, but it will be a much welcomed improvement in Bridgeview.
