This is the original part of the Gandy Bridge from the 1920's. It's falling apart from the salt water corrosion. It's a shame that this great trail is closed and waiting for funds to tear it down which is less expensive than repairs.

The trail has recently closed indefinately due to structural problems and there are a lot of upset bikers. They are not sure if it will be repaired and reopened but I wouldn't bank on it. There is a small portion still open to foot traffic...More
