The Thirty-Ninth Street conduit extension, constructed by the open cut method, eliminated the East Arm. The first part of the new sewer is the reinforced concrete invert, shown here completed on September 24, 1924, looking eastward from a point east of Racine Avenue toward the Morgan Street bridge. The walls of the new sewer were cast where the reinforcing rods protrude on each side of the invert. (MWRD photo 11210)
