Hoan Bridge: I-794 over Kinnickinnic River in Milwaukee, WI

(Bridge Hunter, Satellite (83 photos))

When I saw the steel arch, I assumed that this was a replacement bridge. But Bridge Hunter indicates it was built in 1974. This strikes me as a very innovative design for the 1970s.

This is one of five photos posted by Steve Rod concerning the boat Fearless arriving to get grain

John Mueller commented on a post:
Milwaukee did have a bridge to nowhere fir a while. The Hoan Bridge sat unused for various beauracratic reasons, and the Blues Brothers even shot a scene where the Illinois Nazis go off the end of said bridge.
