This is another small bridge in the Milwaukee Area.
This bridge is a simple I-Beam bridge across the Kinnickinnic River on a Union Pacific Mainline.
Built in 1923, the bridge is set on concrete substructures, and is four tracks wide. The outer tracks are not used.
The Kinnickinnic River is a shallow flood control project in this area. Overall, the bridge remains in fair condition with severe spalling on the piers.
The bridge has been ranked as locally significant by the author, due to the common design.
The photo above is an overview. The bridge can be accessed from Pulaski Park.
