Description 

To access this bridge you would only be able to visit it on Memorial Day because it is located on Fort Knox. Fort Knox allows the public to visit otherwise closed sites, like graveyards, on base only on this day because it is a holiday. Any other time the bridge is off limits because it is located near a training ground for tanks.
