|Bridge lowers to let the trains pass over the Cape Cod Canal|
Before the Cape Cod Canal was constructed, ships traveling up the Atlantic coast between New York to Boston had to sail all the way around the tip of Cape Cod. The canal makes the trip much shorter, and as such is a vital Federal navigable waterway managed by the Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps is therefore ultimately responsible for this railroad bridge, in addition to the Bourne and Sagamore highway bridges.
This was our first day at Cape Cod!!! Fun times ahead ~ stay tunned ☺
Have Fun, Travel Safe & Stay Healthy!!!
