By June 1, 1906, the Sixteenth Street swing bridge over the extended Sanitary & Ship Canal had been completed and was waiting for the completion of abutments. The east abutment was integrated with the east wall, but was a separate structure. Construction of the east abutment was just beginning, shown at right. The Ninth Street bridge is in the center background. (MWRD photo 3442)
