In case you were too busy enjoying the Blues Fest Saturday night to get any shots, here is the bridge over your head,



These are the three bridges down river from the Interstate 74 bridge in Peoria crossing the Illinois River
1 Concrete span, 2 steel arch, 3 tower lift railroad bridge all in one shot.









Jim,
It was very good to see You and Mecca again thank you for meeting us, I'm sorry that we were unable to ride together that day, what a scorcher :whistle:
We ended up heading out to the Mississippi the next day and running the East side of the big river up from Hamilton to Davenport before heading home.
That stretch of river road between Hamilton and Nauvoo is some of the finest we have ridden yet B)
Thanks for the great pics, the three bridges shot is one I didn't even think of until you brought it to my attention.
I'm sorry we missed the stone bridge in Quincy, next time ;)
Last weekends ride we stayed in a hotel up in Reedsburg Wisconsin and caught a movie called "Gone Girl".
In the movie they kept showing a bridge that looks a lot like yours in Quincy, so when we got home I researched it and the movie was filmed in Cape Girardeau Missouri, down river from you.

Forrest came over to our place and we rode down to Peoria to meet Rainman and Mecca for the flag exchange, kzrider.com/forum/17-ride-reports/508405...bum?start=240#690835
and to see/hear the Illinois Blues Festival.
It was a good time even with Jonny Lang backing out at the last minute.

Taj Mahal closed the show B)


I'm just tired :laugh: (under the bridge)

Yes he is.
I have been waiting a long time to see him.
He canceled a couple months worth of shows earlier this year including the Chicago Blues Fest.
I hope he's OK

We were having problems with the remember me button working. With the changes it works now. When I'm away at another location I have to try two or three times before I can get on. After that it works every time. Might be a security thing.
Sorry your thread has been muddied up and my part in it. Love the bridges. B)

New season, more bridges :woohoo:

This is the Eads bridge in the foreground, finished in 1874 ( I'll let you figure out were it is located :P )
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eads_Bridge
I have wanted to see it and ride across it for a long time now, if I can just find a safe way to do it.

We passed by it on the way down to AZ last month

We have been crossing a lot of cool bridges lately but haven't stopped to take pics :(
This one is located in Siloam Springs state park near Quincy IL.
I use to bow hunt down here around 30 years ago and missed the heck out of the place.
The Mrs. and I just got home from camping down there and it is still awesome B)

Here is a newer one we found last weekend in Princeton IL, very well built with a wood plank deck.
