This thing is way neat. Not a draw bridge but the whole roadway is lifted straight up like an elevator to let the sea going freightors throug to the bay.

Cool to see these big ships go by so close and think about where they have been and where they are going.

This unique bridge is fascinating to watch as its driving platform raises for boat traffic. Get up close and watch the operation of the cabling system.

No matter how strange it sounds, you must spend time in the Canal Park area and near the Aerial Bridge. It is amazing to see the gigantic ore boats glide through a canal that seems impossibly small. Very interesting and relaxing. Fun to imagine where the boats are from and are going to.

Ships traffic was such that we could watch the lift bridge go up without waiting hours. Great electronic schedule board so could plan ahead to be there at the right time.
