Cross Florida Barge Canal - Bridges and Other Infrastructure

Bridges and Other Infrastructure

All the bridges over the St. Johns River north of the canal are high enough for ships, or have movable sections. High bridges were built over the canal, as well as several over the Ocklawaha River where it was not widened to the canal. The following major roads, railroads, and locks and dams cross the path of the canal:

  • Buckman Lock (formerly St. Johns Lock)
  • SR 19 (high bridge)
  • Rodman Dam (south of the canal on the Ocklawaha River, forming Lake Ocklawaha along the canal)
  • Eureka Dam (unfinished)
  • CR 316 (high bridge)
  • SR 40, Bert Dosh Memorial Bridge (high bridge)
  • CR 314 (no bridge)
  • SR 35 (no bridge)
  • SR 464 (no bridge)
  • Florida Northern Railroad (no bridge)
  • CSX S-Line (no bridge)
  • US 27-301-441 (SR 25/SR 500) (no bridge, but several unused supports in the median)
  • CR 475 (no bridge)
  • I-75 (SR 93) (no bridge; recently built land bridge over I-75 for trail users)
  • SW 49th Avenue (no bridge; recently built underpass for trail users)
  • CR 484 (no bridge)
  • SR 200 (no bridge)
  • CSX line (low bridge over the existing Withlacoochee River)
  • US 41 (SR 45), Brittan Alexander Bridge (low bridge over the existing Withlacoochee River)
  • Inglis Lock (Inglis Dam is south of the canal on the Withlacoochee River, forming Lake Rousseau along the canal)
  • US 19-98 (SR 55), Trooper Ronald Gordon Smith Memorial Bridge (Twin bridges that replaced a much higher bridge in 2010)

Between Lake Rousseau and the Ocklawaha River, discontinuous, unwatered excavations mark the canal's planned path, along with different vegetation patterns on the land acquired for the project (as seen from the air).

Famous quotes containing the words bridges and and/or bridges:

    If the Revolution has the right to destroy bridges and art monuments whenever necessary, it will stop still less from laying its hand on any tendency in art which, no matter how great its achievement in form, threatens to disintegrate the revolutionary environment or to arouse the internal forces of the Revolution, that is, the proletariat, the peasantry and the intelligentsia, to a hostile opposition to one another. Our standard is, clearly, political, imperative and intolerant.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)

    And Reason kens he herits in
    A haunted house. Tenants unknown
    Assert their squalid lease of sin
    With earlier title than his own.
    —Robert Bridges (1844–1930)
