CN - Fox River Bridge (Green Bay)


Looking downstream

The swing span is close to the east bank of the river; the railroad runs on an embankment to Riverside Drive, where there is another two span plate girder overpass. Note the large number of short approach spans on the west shore, in the background

Reportedly, Canadian National is looking at selling 850 miles of low density track in Wisconsin, Michigan and Ontario. Reportedly, the line between Green Bay and Denmark is up for sale. There is at least two customers along this line to the south/east of this bridge in Bellevue and Denmark, both of which seem to some level of rail service still in use.

The bridge actually stays open and trains close it when they need to cross. The line sees one train each way.
