10th Street Bridge

Photos 

Opening

This bridge is remotely operated by the bridge tender who also operates the 8th Street Bridge. The distance between the bridges is only 2 blocks, about 750 feet. Very large vessels often use this channel, and the remote control in the 8th Street Bridge gives the operator the ability to clearly see, and safely operate, both spans.
