NWP Swing Bridge

This swing bridge was built in 1911. It has been out of service for many years. However, the Northwestern Pacific Railroad just repaired it and it is expected to begin service again in October. It rotates from the middle of the river.
Here is an aerial view of the bridge and the wetlands.
