Addison Bridge over North Branch Chicago River

Not much is written about the current bridge at this site.    It was apparently built in 1920.  The city undertook a 2.5 million dollar rehabilitation project in 1998.  New lighting fixtures were added.  Railing similar to the original construction was installed.  Pedestrian sidewalks were widened.
