CSX Lower Maumee River Swing Bridge
Posted September 16, 2013, by J. G. (jcg [dot] apollosoyuz [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge was built ~1900-1903 as the Lower Maumee bridge for the Toledo Terminal railroad; unlike the Upper Maumee TTRR bridge, this one is still active thanks to the GM Powertrain facility on Alexis Rd. in north Toledo.
