Swing Bridge
Description:

This Swing Bridge services the Marquette Rail system across the Manistee River. This plate girder swing bridge is a rare structure type in Michigan, and is one of the few remaining functional bridges in the state. Watching one of the 600’+ Great Lakes shipping liners navigate this tight opening is a sight to see. The bridge is still in good working order today and is an intersection point for the area’s industrial rail freight and shipping.
