when we were checking out this bridge we were able to get under it, and to our surprise the bridge has been placed on two steel girders. Glad to see the bridge will be standing for a while. photos added if you want to see what I'm talking about.

My friend was told that if you go on this bridge when it's dark and stop and turn off your car on the middle of it you can hear people in the woods talking (people that have died on the bridge from having been run off it). We decided last night to try.. we got on the middle of it turned off the car and had all our windows down. For a few seconds it was fine then we heard a huge bang on the top of our car. It sounded like something fell on it but we didnt hear anything roll off the car. Immediatly we tried to start the car but it wouldnt work, after a try it did and we left. There were no scratches or dents left on the car.
