Looking north from Wisconsin riverbank

There was one through-truss span on the Wisconsin side, and three on the Michigan side. The swing spans are beyond the bridgetender's house.

This bridge was originally opened by manual power. I do not know if it was ever converted to power operation. Was replaced by the current Ogden Street Bridge in 1973.
