Jembatan Petekan

Jembatan Petekan adalah sebuah jembatan tua dan merupakan salah satu warisan bersejarah dari jaman Belanda. Jembatan ini terletak di bagian utara Ujung Surabaya. Jembatan ini tadinya dipakai sabagai saranan penyebrangan antara Sungai Kalimas dan Selat Madura.

Dinamakan Petekan karena diambil dari kata dalam bahasa Jawa, Petek, yang artinya di pencet atau di tekan. Dengan kata lain Jembata Petekan adalah jembatan layang yang akan terbuka bila ada kapal di bawahnya melintas.

Tadinya, oleh pihak Belanda jembatan ini bernama Ophaalbrug dan di bangun sekitar tahun 1900an, oleh NV Braat and Co. Jembatan itu didesign sebagai jembatan gantung yang bisa dinaik-turunkan, karena saat itu Sunga Kalimas menjadi jalur transportasi utama perahu dan kapal tradisional yang membawa barang ke kawasan perdagangan di Kembang Jepun.
