It is between The Norfolk and Southern Railroad Bridge over the Little Calumet River and the Chicago and Western Indiana RR Bridge ( Union Pacific). The age of this bridge is in dispute. One report places the construction as 1949 and a 1993 reconstruction date. Others feel that the 1993 date refers to a super structure demolition and replacement with the current appearance.
