Old Haughton Road Bridge

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.

Note that to get the bridge to appear in Chowan AND Washington Counties, you HAVE to change the primary county to Bertie County, save the page, then change the primary and secondary counties to Washington & Chowan.

Editing after that completely undoes the above change, so if you make an edit, you have to re-do the whole rigamarole.
