The Chicago Dept. of Transportation reopened the Kedzie Avenue bridge over the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal Tuesday.

The bridge, which was built in 1909 and reconstructed in 1969, was completely restored with a new concrete roadway deck, repaired girders, new sidewalks and more.

The project was completed entirely by city employees, making it the first in-house bridge reconstruction project in more than a decade.
