The Eight Mile Road Bridge (29C0219) is a 480 ft long reinforced concrete slab on precast pile extensions with a 204 ft long swing bridge over Honker Cut. It was built in 1936 and rehabilitated in 1975. The rehabilitation probably didn't include a widening because the bridge is only 20 ft wide (and with 14.7 ft vertical clearance for trucks and 7 ft vertical clearance for boats).
Eight Mile Road continues to the west for two miles before ending at Little Potato Slough. A cable ferry carries vehicles across the slough onto Venice Island. Movable bridges and cable ferries are similar, since they both use a mechanical device to allow boats and vehicles to co-exist. I've noticed that some of these ferries even have bridge numbers!
