Lockport's Abandoned Bridge Over the Des Plaines: Division Street Bridge
The Division Street Bridge in Lockport, IL is currently closed to all traffic (including pedestrian traffic) and hidden behind growth. It once carried traffic across the Des Plaines River, although lost importance once the IL-7 bridge was completed.
The bridge approach is only accessible via IL-53 on the west side of the Des Plaines River/Sanitary Ship Canal.
