The Swing Bridge in Belize City - 360 degree panorama
Here's a shot of the famous Swing Bridge. The whole bridge swings around to let boats pass by. I'm told that it's done with manual crank and the toll will run about $150.00 BZD ($75.00 USD).
The current bridge, the Belcan Bridge, cost $1 million and was built under a Canadian aid program, "opened" on December 3, 1969
The original swing bridge over Haulover Creek, and was built (in England) in 1922 and installed by a New Orleans company in 1923.
