East Portal

This is an active and busy railroad mainline. It was built by the Chicago & Northwestern Railway and follows the shore of Lake Michigan to Manitowoc, then turns toward Green Bay.

This is the same mainline that crosses the C&NW Truss East, the C&NW Truss West and the N. Sunny Point Road Bridges.
