The Island Queen is navigating the South Channel between Rose Point and Parry Island and has just passed the former Canadian National Railways swing bridge at Mile 4.9 Depot Harbor Subdivision. The bridge commonly known as the "Rose Point Swing Bridge" was built by the Ottawa, Arnpior and Parry Sound Railway in 1912, the bridge no longer carries rail traffic. Known officially as the Wasauksing Swing Bridge the bridge is owned by the Canadian Government and provides the only road access to Parry Island. Studies to replace the present structure have been underway for several years.
