Hurricane Bridge
Posted March 29, 2010, by J.P.

some bridges get there names for the street or the creek they are over. Or maybe after some guy or girl who did something cool to get it named after them. But this bridge is called Hurricane bridge. And once you get over the lake on a nice cool day, and a 60 mile per hour wind blows across, you then understand why it is called hurricane bridge.
