September 15, 1899. The raised truss spans for the Chicago Terminal Railroad crossing of the Des Plaines River. The masonry work on three of the raised piers has been completed and work is in progress on the nearest pier on the right. A through truss has been added on the left to enlarge the opening under the bridge for increased flow in the river. (MWRD photo, disc 13, image 2)
