The eastern-most span of the Sixteenth Street bridge over the Des Plaines River, shown in its original position on June 1, 1906, was realigned both horizontally and vertically to meet the bridge over the extended Sanitary & Ship Canal. The east end of the span was moved north and raised. The trestle at right approximates the alignment of the end span. (MWRD photo 3446)
