Notes
Survey number HAER OH-105
Significance: The Monroe Street Bridge was built in 1907 by the King Bridge Company of Cleveland, Ohio using the patented Scherzer movement from the Scherzer Rolling Lift Bridge Company of Chicago. The bridge was built for the Lakeshore and Michigan Southern Railway System, to provide access to the railroad dock yards on the Middlegrounds. The lift operation allowed barge and small boat traffic to travel up the Swan Creek and gave canal boats access to the Miami and Erie Canal. The last year of lift operation was circa 1947.
