Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific
June 9, 1996
Looking southwest from the same location as the preceding slide, a deck girder bridge still in good condition crosses Black Squirrel Creek. Such details as applying safe planking and railings over the bridge ties needed to be attended to before this segment became usable as a trail; today it's in active use as the Rock Island Trail.
