I have seen cars come to a complete halt on the Matthews Bridge in Jax when they realize they are on the "see through" steel grating which replaced the solid road bed a number of years ago. Not good when that happens.

Y'all good on ahead and be first... I can wait.

are you going to wait and see if the weight of your RV will hold on the bridge by letting other people test by going over it, smart thinking.

if someone was to drive over it in front of me and suddenly stop because they got scared that would scare the pants off me,

FWIW, I flew over it on the way to Vegas last weekend and it was quite impressive from the air. I was not even aware that it was being built. It looked to me like the connector roads were complete or nearly so but I am no expert. Please find a more reliable source than me for your travel planning!

I second the comment above - the bridge will have an impressive view but it will not be for those who are adverse to heights.


PS I saw Meteor Crater, AZ from the same flight and that was fantastic. I can't wait to see it from ground level on a future trip in our coach.
