This bridge was also used in the movie "The Stuntman". With Peter O'Toole, I believe.

I believe this bridge was used in the 1984 movie impulse when the roadway was tore open to stop incoming and outgoing cars from entering the contaminated town. Hume Cronyn drove a car off of this bridge in the movie.
