Lincoln Highway Murals Popping Up Like Flowers Here in Illinois-- Part 1

From the April 8, 2013, Chicago Heights (Il) Patch "New Mural Installed Along Lincoln Highway" by Jeff Graveline.

It took nearly four years, but Chicago Heights is the location of the newest piece of public art dedicated April 5th at the Chicago heights Water department at 137 W. 14th Street.  It is one of 35 scattered across the Illinois Lincoln Highway Corridor.

This mural is based on a historical photo where the Lincoln Highway crossed Thorn Creek on the McEldowney Bridge.
