Kaukauna Railroad Swing Bridge

Looking from the north. This bridge is hidden away next to the US Army Corps of Engineers regional headquarters, located next to the navigation canal bypassing the Kaukauna Rapids. Kaukauna Lock #2 is just to the right; Locks #3 though #5 are to the left further downstream.
