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

(Bridge Hunter, Satellite (83 photos))

Street View (Bing's Street View shows the same construction netting)
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. https://shepherdexpress.com/.../bridge-nowhere-brief.../...

Couple nice shots of Alpena arriving in Milwaukee 09/05/2022. She's been very busy this year!
Tim Mousseau: Anyone know how many boats the cement plant is running now? Use to be Huron Portland Cement but don’t know the current name.
Brian Shorkey: Tim Mousseau 1 boat the Alpena. 2 tug and barges.
John Thompson: Tim Mousseau it’s LaFarge now. Don’t know how many they’re running. Moving to tug, barge systems. Less expensive to run, much smaller crew required.
[Both LaFarge and St. Marys Cemment have facilities on Jones Island.]
