I've seen this bridge many times from I-95 right outside of Brunswick. From Harris Neck NWR, I stayed on US 17 to experience coastal Georgia. There is so much lost cruising on the interstate. If you're not in a hurry, taking the side roads is always more rewarding. The day continued to be very overcast. The base of the bridge on the north bank is very accessible, with a part of the old bridge remaining as a fishing dock. Nice planning. There was a family fishing there and no one else in sight. I'll certainly head back up to re-shoot and to see if the bridge is lit at night. It's a remarkable structure.
