Old Haughton Road bridge over Albemarle Sound, North Carolina (1987)

Driving over the old Haughton Road bridge across Albemarle Sound, North Carolina in May 1987. This bridge was obviously doomed even then. A new bridge can be seen under construction off to the right. Now no trace of this old bridge remains.This is one of several videos I've uploaded featuring old, and in some cases now demolished, bridges.
