Bridge Documentation

This simple footbridge appears to have railings and perhaps other parts salvaged from another bridge. The bridge is a simple stringer bridge and welded details suggest modern construction. However the railings are a historic lattice hubguard and most notably the cracked remains of an Illinois Steel Bridge Company plaque is present on the railing. To be clear, this bridge was not built by the Illinois Bridge Company, it uses parts that appear to have been salvaged from a bridge built by the Illinois Steel Bridge Company. The other side of the road has a similar footbridge, but that one lacks the lattice railing. Other streets in Morrisonville have similar footbridges over this drain. One on Cherokee Street also has lattice railing.
