Root Street Junction: NYC over Rock Island

Bird's Eye View
(See these notes for far more information.)

I found this junction on the SPV Map. The NS/NYC/Chicago Junction (CJ)/Union Stock Yard and Transit Company used to go all the way east to the Illinois Central. The segment east of the Rock Island/NYC corridor has been abandoned. That is why the east/west bridge is now a bridge to nowhere.

See the end of Butler Junction for a discussion of CJ's usage.
