It's an open grate bridge, so I wouldn't recommend riding it. Crossing on foot can even be interesting, as the bridge bounces quite a bit with traffic. It's in poor condition, but still used heavily.

nadams, I remember crossing an open grate bridge across the Illinois river at Pekin in the late 1970 on a Suzuki GT-750 Water Buffalo. Trying to ride on the open grate was so difficult, I road up to Peoria to cross back. I never crossed an open grate bridge again!!
