I don't like the quality of the video either but unfortunately since that video 2 of the overpasses in the area have been closed to traffic underneath the bridge.

Agree. Not a good video for this site.

Personally I do not think that video should be on Bridge Hunter, or at least the last scare part should be removed...This site is for documenting bridges, if they want to make freak out vids don't post it here.
