I wish all bridges were available for foot traffic. I realize the high ones might be tempting for ending it all, but that's what fences help prevent. In New York, I always wanted the Tappan Zee bridge to have a pedestrian way like the Newburgh Beacon, and the George Washington ones do. The view of the Hudson looking south as I drove across the TZ every day was often spectacular with sunlit water, and magical cloud forms. It's a similar deal here in Florida with some bridges offering the pedestrian safe passage and others not. Frustrating sometimes. The photograph below was made from a very low bridge that has a walkway on both sides. For those who know this area, it is on the highway that leads to Amelia Island and the resorts there.
