Charlevoix Memorial Drawbridge

210 State Street,
Charlevoix, MI 49720

The drawbridge is a double-leaf bascule bridge in downtown Charlevoix, Michigan, that carries U.S. Route 31 across Island Lake Outlet (also known as the Pine River Channel). It is the fifth bridge to cross the channel there with the first being a pedestrian-only structure that was built in the nineteenth century. The bridge was planned in 1940, but World War II delayed the acceptance of bids until 1947. Construction finished in 1949 and the bridge opened to traffic in late June of that year. 

The drawbridge is an iconic part of downtown Charlevoix. The drawbridge will open on the hour and half hour for larger watercraft. Watching the drawbridge go up and down is a highlight for visitors.
