Abandoned COPR - Redrridge Falls Bridge
Posted January 24, 2016, by Craig Aldinger (gonzogone [at] gmail [dot] com)

Taken from below the bridge, Fall 2015. Title should read "Redridge Dam". The rail bridge was built right next to the historic Redridge Steel Dam in Stanton Township, MI. Also, it was not built by Copper Range but by the Atlantic & Lake Superior, it connected to the CR on the south side of the bridge.
