Wells Street Bridge

(Bridge Hunter, Historic Bridges, Chicago Loop Bridges, John Marvig) See Historic Bridges for a description of the 2011-12 rehabilitation. They built new trusses that preserved the historic look and floated them in place to minimize the downtime of the "L." Note the links to videos.

Veronica Drake posted a postcard of Wells Street Bridge and the photo that was probably tinted to make the postcard. I'll have to research which C&NW station is in the background.
