Notes
  • Likely built by the CCC. Has an interesting zig-zag pattern of suspenders. The suspenders are inclined and are continuous across the bridge, like a shoelace with one set of eyelets at deck level and the other set of eyelets along the main cables. I can't recall ever seeing another bridge like it.
