7 year update - plaques stolen/removed....some serious holes in deck - the west approach to this is insane, basically a 90 angle from end of road to turn onto bridge, very tight corner, not-so-fresh fish catch waiting for you on decking, the mounds of dirt aren't so "moundy" anymore, if youre not paying attention, you could drive right onto this thing and be in serious trouble....its a beauty that should be left and preserved in place but needs to be blocked off for traffic better
