The Liberty Bridge is a bascule-type drawbridge located in Bay City, Michigan, United States. It spans the Saginaw River and connects Vermont Street (on the west side of the river) and Woodside Avenue (on the east side). It was built in 1986.[1]

The Liberty Bridge was built to replace the Third Street Bridge, a small swing bridge dating from 1890 that was located just south of the current Liberty Bridge.
