The Platt Street Drawbridge in Tampa Florida

All 518 feet of the Platt Street Bridge in Tampa, Florida in one clip…and “they” said it couldn’t be done.

 

 

 

The Platt Street Bridge in downtown Tampa was constructed in 1926 at a cost of $400,000. The Platt Street Bridge, as well as the Cass Street Bridge, were designed by the Strauss Bascule Bridge Company, which also designed the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. At 518 feet long, it serves as a vital link between South Tampa and the downtown business core. In 2006, the bridge was granted a historic designation.
