Henry Bridge, Illinois

The river crossing at Henry, Illinois over the Illinois River is a massive “Pennsylvania Through Truss” design built in 1933, replacing an earlier wood bridge. Since river traffic still makes it this far upstream, it must be high enough to allow for the clearance of large vessels.

Built by McClintic-Marshall Company of Chicago and Pittsburgh, it was overhauled in 1988.
