Lion Bridge

Today I kick off a 6-part “small bridge” series with a shot of the Lion Bridge in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. Built in 1906, this reinforced concrete bridge cost $3,000 to build (About $83,000 in 2017 dollars). It was paid for by Hanover Township and Cook County. The bridge is now used for pedestrians and cyclists on a forest preserve bike path, and vehicular traffic runs parallel to it on a modern bridge.
