"Engineering Marvel"

The Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge is an engineering marvel and kids and families can enjoy watching the bridge as it ascends and descends as ships pass under it, a great example of a lift bridge. The bridge spanning the Cape Cod Canal is the main connector between Cape Cod and the mainland for railway traffic. Construction of the bridge started in 1933 and upon its completion in 1935 it held the record of being the longest vertical lift span of its time at 544 feet. Visitors can also relax and spend time exploring the Buzzards Bay Park along the canal and several bike paths along the waterfront offers a nice way to spend an afternoon.
