If there's one thing I'll miss about Houghton, Mi it'll be the really sweet lift bridge. It's just totally awesome.

Winter at night.

Todd I like the pics

Does that bridge have two levels they set it at. Looks like at night it is set lower. Possibly because of few boats. Then during the day it is set higher for general boat traffic.

It's a 2 layer bridge, way back when trains used the lower level year round but the tracks have since been removed. So in the summer the bridge is at the higher setting so cars run on the bottom road so boats can get through but since the water freezes in winter the bridge is lowered and cars drive on top and the bottom is opened to snowmobile traffic
