NS/NYC/LS&MS Movable Span in Sandusky Bay Causeway

(Bridge Hunter, Old Bridge Hunter, Historic Bridges, Birds-Eye View, Street View)

The railroad causeway across Sandusky Bay has four bridges to pass the flow of water. The bridge across the navigation channel as a movable span. Initially, the movable span was a rather unique design.

This span has been replaced by a rolling bridge span: open, closed. I added the label bridgeGirderSteel because it is rare for a rolling bridge to use girders instead of a truss.
