Description 

The bridge is noteworthy in that it acts more like an elevated road than a bridge. It was built as 12th Street was extended from Cayce out to I-77. It crosses Godley Street and the CSX Railroad, formerly the Seaboard Air Line. It then stays elevated over marshy land to the intersection with Frink Street at the Norfolk Southern tracks. The bridge also features a rare intersection where roads from either side come up to the bridge and stop at a stop sign. 12th Street traffic does not stop. The bridge also curves several times.
