Looking at the satellite picture of this bridge I see a truss bridge which I think is a swing truss.Anybody know anything about this bridge?I didn't even know this bridge was here until somebody asked about it.From looking at it I can tell it's a railroad truss bridge.Can't miss it,that's for sure.
