Burlington Canal Lift Bridge by susanbreau

We went to watch the full moon rise, but the bridge was nice too, so I took a few long exposures as well.

There were five different moveable bridges located on this site since 1830. The present bridge was opened in 1962 and carried two lanes of vehicular traffic across the canal. This structure originally had tracks for the Hamilton — Northwestern railway which were removed in 1982 when the road way was widened to four lanes.
