Cables No More

May 18, 2008. St. Louis, Missouri.

This view is looking north up the old Illinois Traction/Terminal System (ITS) approach to the McKinley Bridge. The former electrified railway bridge approach is now a hiking and biking trail. The overhead power lines were removed long ago when the ITS converted to diesel powered trains.

The McKinley Bridge crosses the Mississippi River between St. Louis, MO and Venice, IL, and was built by the ITS in 1910. The bridge carried automobiles in addition to trains. After an extensive rehabilitation, the bridge once again carries automobiles, as well as hikers and bicyclists.
