When the railway means of transportation was introduced to Yuma in 1877, the Steamboats hung on for another six years. So great pain was taken to accomodate both the railroad and the steamboats. Engineers at the time came up with the swing span pivot bridge that could be opened when a train wasn't coming through to allow the steamboat to ply up and down the river.
