The Bataan-Corregidor Memorial Bridge, also known as the State Street Bridge, is a bridge that carries State Street across the Chicago River in downtown Chicago, Illinois, United States.[1]

HistoryEdit

The current bridge was started in 1939,[2] but material shortages in World War II caused a delay in completion until 1949.[3]
