I remember being very young (1980's) and my grandpa took my sister and I to this bridge. The water was low enough that we walked all the way across. I can't find anything about that time, though. I remember being bored and tired of walking but my grandpa told us how special it was to be able to walk on the bridge because it is usually underwater. I was hoping that maybe someone has some pictures from that time.
