Lighting of the Bridge

Easily missed on your average day, the old Fairview Bridge, located about 3.5 miles east of Fairview across the North Dakota border, is also a vertical lift structure, but its lift span cannot be moved. While now closed to both rail and vehicular travel, the Fairview Bridge also has another claim to fame-it adjoins the only tunnel in North Dakota. The 1,456 foot long tunnel was built in 1912 and 1913. Once a year though, you can’t miss it. The annual Lighting of the Bridge paints the bridge with spotlights and fireworks.
