The stuck up bridge

This week’s URBEX (urban exploration) trip took me a few minutes from the house and into Providence. We see this bridge every day, and I never knew the story behind it. Now I do.

The intro from Wikipedia:

The Crook Point Bascule Bridge (or the Seekonk River Drawbridge) is a defunct Scherzer rolling lift railway bridge which spans the Seekonk River, connecting the city of Providence, Rhode Island, to the suburb of East Providence. Stuck in the open position since its abandonment in 1976, it is known to nearby residents as the “Stuck-Up Bridge” and has become somewhat of a local icon of urban decay.[1]
