Michigan Railway Grand River Swing BridgeLocation: Grand River (Michigan Ry) Bridge, Grand Rapids, MI

This high swing bridge over the Grand River was usd by the Michigan Railway for interurban trains.  It is south of Wealthy Street.  The bridge is higher above water level than many bridges because it also spanned over the Pere Marquette main line and an adjacent highway.  The bridge is used today for pedestrian traffic.
