Prescott Lift Bridge
Built in 1984, the BNSF railroad lift bridge at Prescott spans the Saint Croix River, but it is located at the point where the Saint Croix River flows into the Mississippi River. This is one industrial strength bridge. Everything is massive, from the steel in the truss sections, the large counterweights, the massive towers, to the huge motor assemblies at the top of the towers. The bridge has to be strong to endure the pounding that it takes day in and day out, with an average of 40 trains per day, and a lot of them carrying iron ore. The lift bridge is operated frequently in the summer due to a high volume of recreational boaters on this section of the river.
