Ingalls Swinging / Suspension Footbridge

Map 

Description 

Throughout North Carolina there are over a dozen of these suspension footbridges - usually painted silver and posted with signs reading "Caution Bridge Capacity Limited To Four Persons". Much like VDOT to the north having their ~70 suspension footbridges, I believe these are NCDOT maintained bridges.
