Bridges at Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) train stations over the tracks are becoming extinct. When the Belmont Brown/Red/Purple line station was rebuilt for the Brown Line Capacity Expansion project, the bridge at the south end was removed.
I took this photo in 2006 from the Belmont footbridge, not long before it was closed to passengers and then demolished.
