DT&I Old Swing Bridge Delray - June, 2003Location: River Rouge (DT&I) Bridge, Detroit, MI

This swing bridge crosses the River Rouge near the corner of Dearborn Avenue and Jefferson Avenue.  It was used originally by the Detroit, Toledo & Ironton main line to reach its passenger station and yards in Delray.  The bridge, which is green in color, is no longer connected to rails, and is used as an emergency exit for vehicles from the island.  This bridge was originally built for the Canada Southern to cross between mainland and Grosse Isle.  It was removed and floated to the new Rouge River location during the Henry Ford era of the DT&I.
