This lift bridge is located just west of the downtown Medina harbor and dock area. Just northeast of the harbor is the spectacular Medina Falls, where the Oak Orchard River actually passes under the canal and then over the Falls. A few miles further east is the only place where you can drive under the Erie Canal, through the Culvert Road underpass.
1) After you've found a vertical lift bridge, go visit it, get the coordinates, a picture or two of it, and if it is in use or not still as a lift bridge.
Then log it and post your pictures! At least one of the photos must be of you and your GPS there with the bridge in the background. (No old vacation shots or photos off the internet!)
2) Include the coordinates, city/county/state/country and the name of the bridge (if it has one).
3) Include any interesting information about the structure
