|The Wabash Bridge carries rail lines across the Mississippi River between Hannibal, Missouri and Illinois.
It has been a vertical lift bridge since 1994, but it was originally constructed as a swing span. The vertical lift span was relocated from a bridge over the Tennessee River at Florence, Alabama to increase the width of the navigational channel. During a three day outage, the previous span was removed and the replacement span was installed to minimize impact to traffic. Originally constructed for the Wabash Railroad, currently owned by Norfolk Southern Railway.
