A railroad turnstile bridge crosses the Choptank River just north of Denton and about a quarter of mile above (north) the Denton Drawbridge.  The bridge was once operated by a hand-cranked turnstile. The bridge was rotated 90 degrees and vessels could pass to either side of the central island, which supported the turnstile bridge.  The bridge trestle was constructed for the Queen Anne Railroad. The bridge was last used by the Baltimore and Eastern Railroad and the Baltimore Chesapeake & Atlantic Railroad.
