|January 2014 (25.87778 Degrees, -80.13028 Degrees) Surfside Blvd Bridge|
Another aspect of life in Florida are the many gated communities on islands inside Biscayne Bay. The Surfside Blvd Bridge (FDOT #876100) across Indian Creek has a police station at one end to prevent uninvited guests (like me) from entering. A positive aspect of these semi-private bridges is that they appear to be well maintained (or at least frequently painted).
The Surfside Blvd Bridge is a 13 span reinforced concrete 'T' girder bridge that was built in 1930. The bridge is highly ornamented with columnated barriers supporting obelisks over the piers and with arch-shaped exterior girders. The bridge is eligible for registry as a historic place.
