FEC Strauss Trunnion Bascule BridgeEdit profile
The FEC Strauss Trunnion Bascule Bridge is a double track railroad bridge spanning the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida.
Completed in 1925, this structure replaced a single-track swing bridge which opened on January 5, 1890. The current structure is a simple truss bridge with plate girder approaches and a bascule lift allowing ships to pass. It runs immediately next to the Acosta Bridge.References and external links
