"Shoofly" used during Kennedy construction.
[Note all of the fire fighting water towers on top of the buildings.]
I had my daughter drive me around Chicago so that I could take pictures of some bridges. Here are the pictures I grabbed as we went south on I-90/94.
I left the rear-view mirror in the frame because I wanted to maximize the capture of the of the Willis/Sears Tower. The road bridge is Hubbard Street and the railroad bridge is UP/C&NW's West Line.
|We are under the West Line bridge looking at the Green Street and Kinzie Street bridges and the beginning of Hubbard Street Tunnel.|
|You can tell the difference between the Kinzie Street Bridge and the Hubbard Street Tunnel because of the thickness of the steel girders. The girders are thicker than a minivan is tall!|
|I extracted a closeup in an attempt to show how dense the girders are placed.|
|Speaking of bridges, the lower level is Lake Street and the upper level carries the Green and Pink "L" trains.|
