I noticed the sign.Drinking water protection area?The sign would make it obvious for a drunk who had to pee,wouldn't it?Just a little humor.

This bridge is no longer open. The best picture I have is a still from my dashcam, and unfortunately, I don't have any better detail, as I completely missed the existence of this bridge when I drove by it, and it wasn't until I was going through the dashcam footage that I saw a bridge on the map that I didn't immediately see in the video.

The "approach" to the bridge has been removed and grass now grows there, and there's a chain link fence barring access to the bridge.

Streetview imagery along LA-182 hasn't been updated in nearly 6 years.
