What Does The Oliver Bridge Look Like In The Early Morning? A Drive Across In The Dark Puts You In The Drivers Seat

I had reason to cross the Oliver Bridge in the dark and it got me to thinking:  Why not put YOU in the drivers seat with me?

The Oliver Bridge was built in 1916, crossing the Saint Louis River between Gary-New Duluth, Minnesota and Oliver, Wisconsin.  The bridge is rather unique for our area in that it has an upper and a lower deck.  On the upper deck, train tracks carry engines and cars for the Canadian National Railway.  There is also room for a streetcar line that was to connect the two cities – but was never built.  On the lower deck, automobile traffic crosses the waterway.

Originally constructed of wood, the bridge was dramatically upgraded in 2000 – replacing the wooden planks with steel and concrete.
