Seems like the Illinois River has quite a few old trusses.

Quite a few left.  However, they are getting fewer in number as IDOT replaces them.  That said, some of these trusses and even left bridges from Chicago to the Mississippi River on the Illinois Waterway aren't going anywhere soon.

Just the one over the series of tracks. Is that what you mean?

Yes.  One of the Minot bridges has one truss span, while the other one has 2.
