This bridge is in Glenwood, IL on the former Baltimore & Ohio Chicago Terminal (later CSX), a switching line south of Chicago. This line was likely abandoned when CSX obtained trackage rights on the parallel Union Pacific (which was originally the Chicago & Eastern Illinois and later the Missouri Pacific).
