The Union Street Bridge is a double leaf Scherzer rolling lift bascule supporting Union Street over the Gowanus Canal in the borough of Brooklyn. The bridge has two vehicular traffic lanes, each approximately 17 feet wide, and two sidewalks, each 6 feet wide. Both traffic lanes carry eastbound traffic.

One of these bridges was featured in the film "Heaven help us" with Donald Sutherland. Bud Melman played the bridge operator. Ever seen it? *
