Sunset Lake Floating Bridge

Tuesday, 18th September 2007 by

The Sunset Lake Floating Bridge in Brookfield, Vermont is actually a GSS first, as we've never featured a floating bridge before.

Built on floating logs all the way back in 1820, upgraded to tarred barrels in 1884, and plastic barrels in 1978, this is actually the seventh version of the bridge, which despite long periods of closure during its lifetime is today open for you to drive your car over if you're in the area.

Bear in mind that you're more than likely to get a little wet though, as the bridge was actually designed to be permanently semi-submerged...
