Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge


Bourne, Massachusetts (MA), US
The Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge (also known as the Buzzards Bay Railroad Bridge), a vertical lift bridge in Bourne, Massachusetts near Buzzards Bay, carries railroad traffic across the Cape Cod Canal, connecting Cape Cod with the rest of Massachusetts, USA. While most lift bridges are kept down for land traffic to cross and lifted to allow boat traffic to pass under, The Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge is one of only a few lift bridges in the United States kept in an up position and only lowered for the occasional land traffic.
