Relation[Is Part Of] Bridges of North Dakota exhibit
Biography/HistoryCoal and grain barges used the lake on the upper Des Lacs River, where the railroad crossed the water. A section of this bridge could be turned on a pedestal to allow the barges to pass. This same method, a turn span, was used at Grand Forks for the Northern Pacific Railroad bridge over the Red River.
