Huh! In looking at the forum, I guess I found another bridge in the vein of Honouli Wai or Bath House Road, didn't I? *shrugs*
Driving around the curve from Rashotte Road onto Avalon, it made me think there was definitely a culvert in the channel - but, in looking at pictures of those other two bridges, the arch of this one looks a LOT like it does for them underneath.
Whereas Honouli Wai has 3 arches and Bath House Road has 2, this only has the one. And the arches on those don't look nearly as raised as this one is.
24 feet, still culvert? Just curious
As you can tell from the picture at the top, Avalon Road is home to a shoreline neighborhood (one of several in Bay County), and in fact, it's right in the northeast corner of the county.
So despite the minimum load posting, I doubt very much that this area sees giant vehicle traffic.
The top picture doesn't show it very well, but this is a fairly steep crossing for a bridge/culvert. Trying to get good pictures didn't go so well, between the multiple "no parking" signs posted and a resident's dog out and about in the one area where I could have feasibly parked (might as well have been a guard dog). So both pictures that I've posted here were taken while I was sitting in the car.
Even though this crossing really does consist of a large culvert (thus its steep-ness), this one at least has a rather interesting design around it. There's actually a second one at the north end of the road, that is also steep but is far less aesthetically interesting.
