Actually this was a Bascule bridge according to these two photos found on the Florida Memory website. There's also some vintage pictures, videos and all sorts of stuff about the State of Florida. The website is www.floridamemory.com

Visited the bridge 10/3/13 its closed off with fence along with a No Trespassing sign from the dept of transportation at the entrance. Closed to pedestrians. However There is a spot that the fence has been pulled back to gain access to the bridge for those who like to live dangerously.
