FAU 3043 "Bridge"
Posted January 31, 2010, by D. W. Adams (weetbixmarmite [at] yahoo [dot] com)

The facts listed on this page do not appear to describe the structure pictured. The structure pictured doesn't appear to be 55.4 feet wide or carry 10,380 vehicles a day.

After some head-aching research, I have found the following: One of the facts appears to be in error as other sources list the structure to be 3.51 feet in length rather than 35.1 feet. FAU 3043 (or "City Street 3043" on some sources) seems to refer to Poplar Street, nowadays called Airways Boulevard, which was originally SR 1 and US 70. The structure appears to be a concrete box culvert over a creek or "branch", just west of the intersection with Main Street and Lafayette Street, that appears to be completely invisible from the street as businesses on both sides of the street have built their parking lots over it.

The bridge in the pictures is very beautiful, though, and I certainly move to create a listing here for it.
