Big Truck Pete: What is the "shoo fly" for? Are they replacing the toll road bridges? I will have to take a drive over there to see the action!
Which brings to mind, in 1957 (I grew up in Hinsdale), when the Burlington constructed the toll road bridges originally and built a "shoo fly" for the displaced trains. They employed a steam pile driver and I enjoyed laying in bed listening for it's steam locomotive whistle, as it signaled for re-positioning.
