The old former Illinois Central Railroad swing bridge, over the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal. Chicago Illinois. Monday, June 15th, 2015.

Located east of the South Kedzie Avenue bridge, at approximately
what would be West 33rd Street. For many years, this bridge had
served the trains on the Illinois Central Railroad's Iowa
Division Mainline. Today it serves the freight trains of
successor railroad Canadian National.

This bridge was built in 1899, and is still in use today.
