Kenny Sheets: Where is this lyft bridge?

Dennis DeBruler replied to Kenny's question
Note the remnants of a lock from a previous canal channel. Counting the 1973 bypass channel, there have been five canals through here.

The 3D Satellite view also shows an abandoned railroad swing bridge over the old canal remnant. There used to be a second lift bridge to carry the railroad across the new channel.
