The next series of bridges in the Chicago Bridge Lift of October 19, 2019 includes the group from State Street to Wells Street. As before, photographs of the bridge will come after the title of the structure.
The State Street Bridge is also known by the honorary name of the Bataan- Corregidor Memorial Bridge, as seen on the plaque on the bridge tender’s house.
The Dearborn Street Bridge was raised at the same time as State Street.
Having photographed Clark Street Bridge during the Wednesday boat run, I waited for additional photos of the LaSalle Street Bridge, with its four ornate tender’s houses.
The massive Wells Street Bridge weighs in total 5,000 tons and carries CTA trains on its upper deck, plus vehicles and pedestrians on its lower decks.
