    When I look at lift bridges, I always wonder how the Engineers keep the towers and bridge structure in square. The foundations must be deep and extremely strong, as any misalignment would cause binding.

    In the mid-1930s, the Pennsylvania Railroad built two massive multi-track lift bridges in Newark, NJ that continue to shoulder hundreds of trains each day. [February 1983, Nikkormat FTn, Kodachrome]

    1870 Waco Suspension Bridge

    The Waco Suspension Bridge crosses the Brazos River in Waco, Texas. It is a single-span suspension bridge with a main span of 475 feet that opened in 1870. It was built because, before 1869, the only way to cross the river was by ferry. Due to the location of Waco on the growing Chisholm Trail, local businessmen knew that a bridge was needed to support commerce and they promoted its construction.
