Florida East Coast Railway Builds Double-Track Bridge 1925

Florida East Coast Railway Bridge (25 k)


The Florida East Coast Railway built this double-track bridge across the St. Johns River in Jacksonville. The bridge included a trunnion bascule, or Strauss-type, lift span. The single leaf of this span measured 216 feet in length, making it one of the largest of its kind at the time. The bridge, which parallels the Acosta Bridge, continues in services today.
