On Route 41, Indiana's longest ironclad bridge over a nobody of water has served NW Indiana commuters with a safe passageway over numerous train tracks in Gibson Rail Yard for over 75 years.

Some of the nine steel spans from the bridge will be recycled to areas where a shorter span of bridge will suffice.
