Former moveable bridge

View Exhibit map

Bridges that were constructed as moveable bridges but have either since had the moveable machinery removed, converting it to a fixed bridge. Alternatively, bridges may still contain their machinery but are currently "locked" in the closed position or abandoned in the open position, and therefore inoperable.
