Description 

Part of a former railroad spur. The east end apparently feeds into a short tunnel. A road leads to the west end of the bridge, but it's not clear if this road is gated to the public.

The bridge is private and gated. Access is only available by owner invitation or during an event at the abandoned mine. The facility has been closed since the mine flooded in Dec 2015 / Jan 2016. Private events have been scheduled for mid 2017.

Yes, Bridge is now open to public. It is used to go to Crystal City Underground Events Center. Problems attaching the photo.
