Illinois and Michigan Canal

The Illinois and Michigan Canal was constructed from 1836 to 1848 and included 17 locks and four aqueducts along its 96-mile route connecting the Chicago and Illinois rivers. It was largely replaced by the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, and was decommissioned in 1933.
