In Hammond, the Nine-Span Bridge is coming down – span-by-span. Demolition work began a couple months ago on the historic bridge on Indianapolis Boulevard. When it's rebuilt, the Indiana Department of Transportation says it won't be a nine-span anymore.
The Nine-Span, spanning the railyards as it connects Hammond and East Chicago, was built in the mid 1930s. INDOT says the new bridge is expected to open before the end of the year.
