I think one of the two Bailey bridges may actually be for the Clark St span. They could also be used to construct the Red Line station with active freight or Metra traffic above. I noticed them sinking micropiles near the SCAL/Rock Island diamonds.

I think they will need a Bailey bridge for Wells/Wentworth project at the SCAL crossing (shoofly), but the Freeport sub should be able to have a shoofly on terra firma while they build that underpass.
