We've crossed it in both a Class C and our current Class A. Sometimes in rainy windy weather, sometime perfectly clear. They have wind advisories and if its not safe they close the bridge. It is a tall bridge, impressive span, and an engineering marvel so if you get the chance to go across do it.

...and they are constantly painting it in sections. It's a BIG job and think of hanging over the sides to do it. Driving is a cinch!

trolls and uppera, I have not heard that one in a while I grew up about 30 miles under the bridge. My brother still live about 20 miles from baldwin. I go visit every year and drive over the bridge. Two years ago I drove over in the middle of a show storm, now that was fun.

Just be careful and slow down. It will be something you will remember if it windy because it will add a bit of excitement.
