Chicago has got some bridges

Chicago has got some bridges.
A little bit of trivia about a couple of these bridges. The top bridge at Franklin Street was an important part of the 2005 film “Batman Begins” because it’s the bridge that connects Gotham City with the Narrows. The 2nd bridge from the top (Wells Street) is the double decker extreme bridge. It carries three lanes of southbound traffic along with two sidewalks. The upper deck slams across two sets of CTA trains every day with the brown and purple. The bottom bridge (Dearborn Street) is the only bridge featured here that was not built between 1919 to 1929. It was constructed in 1962, and its straight-line modern style certainly proclaims that.
