The Ninth Street bridge over the Sanitary & Ship Canal had been open for traffic for four years by July 14, 1910. Looking north, it appears practically identical to the Sixteenth Street bridge, however, it is slightly heavier and longer. The operator’s house for this bridge was also relocated for better visibility. This bridge was transferred to state ownership when the road became a state highway. (MWRD photo 0159A)
