|December 2012 (26.3395 Degrees, -80.0772 Degrees) Camino Real Bridge|
You can see some deterioration to the bridge in the photo. It appears that the reinforcement on the pier on the right side of the photo has corroded and is causing the concrete to spall. Perhaps the steel pile bent is a later addition to help support the approach span?
There is a posting below the operator's house that the bridge is supposed to open every 20 minutes but it didn't open for the hour I spent at the site. I wonder how active the Intracoastal Waterway is? Perhaps you have to make an appointment with the Coast Guard weeks in advance to travel through this section of the channel.
