Pleasant Street Bridge House

The City of Milwaukee developed the towerless vertical lift bridge in the 1960s.  A vertical-lift, or tabletop bridge, is a movable bridge that uses a counterweight and hydraulics to raise the bridge vertically while remaining parallel with the deck.  The Pleasant Street Vertical Lift Bridge was built in 1972 and was rehabilitated in 2013.  See how a bridge works from a bridge operator’s perspective.  There will be 2-3 openings per hour during the event.
