not only that but beware of security guards, I had a security guard claim the bridge is on State Correctional Property, and ripped me and James up and down, and even threatened to call the state police. We did not pass any signage that would stop anyone from visiting the bridge, the closest signs are on a street on the east side of the bridge. But I would recommend be careful.

Anyone visiting this bridge must lock their car doors and beware of their surroundings. The bridge is near a correctional facility! Also, next to this bridge is a high railroad bridge.
