Buzzard’s Bay is the gateway to Cape Cod. This extraordinary, 544 foot span provides 136 feet of vertical lift for ships to pass beneath it. The entire steel superstructure for this railroad bridge was manufactured by the Phoenix Bridge Company. It was the largest vertical lift bridge in the United States when it was constructed.
