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

CN Fox River Bridge
Posted November 16, 2013, by Anonymous

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