||Bridges - New B & O Railroad Bridge
||View of bridge north across the Calumet River at about 96th Street. One of the most important rail crossings connecting Chicago with rail lines to the east and northeast. This single leaf bascule bridge was built in 1912. In the background a swing bridge can be seen. By 1915, four new lift bridges had been built allowing ten sets of tracks to cross the river.
