I have now re-listed the current bridge at http://bridgehunter.com/fl/brevard/bh90167/ and this time I did it right so that the page actually works.

I have indicated this bridge as the "Old" bridge as there is a plate girder double-leaf bascule bridge at this location today, which is also old enough to be considered historic IMO (though just barely so). I had previously attempted to add it to the site, not knowing about the original bridge here. However, there were multiple technical glitches that resulted in the page being so badly malformed that I had to take it down. I may try again, now that I know that it's not even the first bridge at the location.
