Bridge Documentation

This impressive Strauss heel-trunnion bascule bridge carries vehicular traffic on three different decks. This bridge is one of three impressive Strauss heel-trunnion bascule bridges on this canal. The bridge originally had two single lane roadways cantilevered on the outside of the truss lines which also carried streetcars. The interior deck of the bridge originally carried railroad traffic like the other two bridges on the canal. But on this bridge, the railroad deck was later also converted for highway use, so all decks of the bridge remain in place for use by vehicular traffic.
