Swing Bridge over St Joseph River

On the St. Joseph River we found a Swing Railroad Bridge connecting tracks over the St. Joseph River from the towns of St. Joseph to Benton Harbor. This swing bridge was built in 1904 to allow boats to travel down the St. Joseph River and railroad trains to cross over the river. There are about a dozen swing bridges still in use in Michigan crossing such rivers as the Manistee, Rouge and Saginaw.
