This drawing of the shear pole swing bridge is actually the 5th Street Bridge in Delaware City. (The Corps of Engrs considers Reedy Point Bridge over the C&D Canal and this bridge as one "system" but they are different.)
The existing 5th Street bridge was installed about 1930, is a bascule welded shut now, and was closed Sep. 12 (today) 2016 for replacement with a concrete span.
Two pix taken about 7 AM 9-12-16, looking south down the roadway and looking southeast along the (old) canal.
