This former lift bridge just south of Norfolk will be remembered fondly (??) by southbound cruisers as one of the series of bridges necessary to transit at the beginning of the ICW.

Removal activity continues at the site of the former Carl B. Jordan Bridge and fender system, at AIWW mile 2.8, along the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River, in Chesapeake, VA.
