This massive lift bridge dominates the Joliet skyline when seen from I-80.
Built in 1932, this bridge replaced an older truss bridge. It features a 20 panel, riveted Camelback Through Truss, set onto large towers.
This main span is approached by a Subdivided Warren Through Truss on either side. The one on the west end is 151 Feet, while the east one is 101 Feet.
In addition, the bridge also features concrete substructures, typical of many newer age bridges. The large vertical lift span is required to allow massive ships to pass through en route to the Illinois River.
