Trestle Bridge - Chain of Rocks

Chain of Rocks Bridge opened in 1929 crossing the Mississippi River and connecting Madison, Illinois to St. Louis, Missouri. The bridge closed in 1968 when a newer bridge was constructed just south of it. The bridge was used in the 1980 film Escape From New York but was not open for public use at that time. In 1999 after clean up and restoration the bridge was opened for pedestrian and bike traffic. Part of the Route 66 Bikeway it is one mile long and 24 feet wide.
