The Ohio Street Bridge is up the Buffalo River from the Michigan Street Bridge. This view is farther upriver toward "Elevator Alley," a stretch lined on both sides by grain elevators. The Cargill Electric elevator can be seen behind the bridge to the right. The current bridge is the third at this site, the first a swing bridge built in 1866, and the second a Brown-design bascule bridge built in 1904. The current vertical lift span, in which the entire deck is pulled upward, was completed in 1962.
