Location: Upper Maumee River Drawbridge (TTRR) - Maumee, OH

The Toledo Terminal crossed the Maumee River in two locations on its belt line around the city.  This is the Upper Maumee River bridge, which was single track.  (The Lower bridge was double track).  The Upper bridge was designed to be a swing bridge but information suggests that it was never equipped with motors and never opened.  The bridge had loading restrictions and was permanently abandoned after an accident in May, 1982.

The bridge was built in 1902 and was 1,450 feet long made up of 8 spans.
