Trail/IR/(CB&Q+Milwaukee Bridge) over Rock River in Rockford, IL

(Bridge Hunter3D Satellite)

This bridge was finally converted to trail use in 2016. This is my favorite Bridge Hunter photo because it catches part of the Fordham Dam as well as all five truss spans of the bridge.

We are in Rockford, IL as a N/B MILW frt (operating on BN (CB&Q) trackage) x/o the Rock River. The bridge remains today, but alas the trks have been removed and trains no longer operate over it. Photos dated Sept 1, 1977. John Kamacher Photos/Wm Shapotkin Collection.
