This aqueduct is located near Morris, Illinois. It traverses Nettle Creek. It is 80-90 feet. It was constructed in 1847. The contractors were William Pierce and a Mr. Armstrong. The original construction was a wood superstructure and redstone piers. The wood structure was replaced by a steel trough. Later modifications were made of the superstructure. The sandstone piers had to be replaced by cut stone. The aqueduct was destroyed by a flood in April 19, 2013. It is still in this condition. There is no water in the aqueduct and consequently there is no water in the canal just west of the aqueduct.
The project to replace this aqueduct has been on hold due to the lack of state funds.
