Old US 11 Wooden Bridge
Posted July 25, 2021, by Brian R. Warren (sanitarian1281[at]yahoo[dot]com)

I visited this site on July 19, 2021. Getting to it was tricky because the dirt road leading to this abandoned alignment of US 11 was being graded at the time and it wasn't REALLY wide enough for two vehicles. It's a bit unclear whether this bridge is still on public land; it is directly adjacent to land evidently used by the US Navy for weapons testing and other parcels owned by NASA.
