The Dix Avenue Bridge

We caught the Tregurtha from the Dix Avenue Bridge.
 Like the Jefferson Avenue Bridge it is a bascule bridge.  But this one is a deck truss rather than a pony truss bridge. 
I don't think it is as nice looking as the other one though.  This bridge was built in 1929 by the Wisconsin Bridge and Iron Company.  It was renovated in 1989.
