A 'Low Water Bridge' over the Shenandoah River

We visited a low water bridge in Strasburg, Virginia. The bridge sits just a foot over the Shenandoah River, so when the river rises it's impossible to drive across the bridge. Residents must plan ahead and park a car on either side of the bridge and walk across the high suspension bridge. Even though the bridge was not under water at the time of our visit, we walked across the suspension bridge.
