Main Street Bridge
Posted August 5, 2011, by Brian and Jennifer Roos (dragon8warrior [at] gmail [dot] com)

Upon further investigation, if you study the surroundings of both bridges in question, the pictures of the bridge we posted are, in fact, of the Main Street Bridge. The photo of the plaque was the only incorrect photo in this bunch. Also, if you study the bridge itself, the bridge in the photos posted in no way resembles the Orange Avenue bridge. The Main Street Bridge is a straight span with a small bascule and the Orange Avenue bridge has a slight curve in the Eastern approach with a longer bascule. Also, missing from this collection of photos of the Main Street Bridge is the courthouse in the background. The courthouse can quite easily be seen in photos of the Orange Avenue bridge to the West.

The photos posted with this page are of the wrong bridge - the photos are of the "Orange Avenue Bridge" not the "Main Street Bridge." I live in Daytona Beach, I know what they look like.

Oops! I started posting these after we got back from Florida and somehow never finished!
