Van Buren Street Bridge

When I got the satellite link, I noticed they were working on the bridge again so I saved that image.

Chicago Loop Bridges explains that the new bridge was built while the old one was still operational.

Now they just closed it for months for auto traffic. At least they are trying to keep the pedestrian crossing open most of the time because of the Union Station commuter traffic that uses it.
