April 13, 1899. The raising of the truss spans for the Chicago Terminal Railroad Bridge over the Des Plaines River adjacent to Section E. This bridge didn’t have to be replaced, but had to be raised to accommodate raising the grade of the rail line for the crossing of the Main Channel. One through truss was added as shown in Photo 10.26. (MWRD photo, disc 11, image 84)
