This is an Abt Bascule bridge. The Port Huron posting has more information on this type of bridge.

Peter Dudley shared
Railroaders know this bascule bridge as Wabash Bridge, currently owned and operated by Norfolk Southern Railway (NS).
The view is south (downstream), looking toward the Fisher Freeway (I-75) / Rouge River Bridge (Scott Hocking photo, 2017).
Ken Borg That bascule bridge is one of eight that was built to this design and one of three that are in Michigan.
