Nacote Creek Bridge

This was a manually-operated swing bridge that has not been operable for at least 30 years. It is posted at 3 tons and was recently reduced to a one lane bridge by narrowing the cartway. It was featured in the movie "Eddie and the Cruisers".

This bridge has wooden approach spans on either side of the pony truss. It is open to traffic, and has been for a while now.
