Well Rhino, this thread has inspired me. After looking around on google earth, found this. My wife and I went this morning and walked it. Great way to spend the morning. Great thread and I hope you don't mind this contribution.
Millbrook Bridge - 1897 - Pratt through truss
Approximate latitude, longitude +41.60674, -88.56190, 41°36'24" N, 88°33'43" W
Three spans with two piers. One span is different from the other two. Over the Fox.
New Bridge in the back....
The upstream side has sustained some unrepaired damage over the years.
Years on, then years off. Now back at it.
Some ride reports:
