Prescott Wisconsin BNSF Rail Cam

Live BNSF Rail Cam Prescott Wisconsin

View the live HD BNSF rail cam in the city of Prescott, Wisconsin facing the Point Douglas Drawbridge. Prescott is located in northwest Wisconsin and is one of the oldest Wisconsin towns on the Mississippi River, dating back to 1839.

With views of the St Croix River, this live streaming cam from Scabs Place shows a vital transportation link from the city of Prescott to Hastings, Minnesota. The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway plays a pivotal role in transporting foods and materials throughout the region. The Prescott Bridge is a rare regional example of a Waddell-and-Harrington, vertical-lift highway bridge. It was constructed by a group of Prescott Wisconsin residents who operated it as a toll crossing from 1923 to 1946.

The bridge helped create a major interstate route today known as United States Highway 10. It linked eastern Wisconsin and St Paul, Minnesota. The Prescott Wisconsin Point Douglas Bridge, unlike the lift bridge, is a bascule bridge with a movable span that allows river traffic to pass underneath. Both bridges play significant roles in the region’s transportation infrastructure, allowing goods and people to move across the river.
