  1. I do know for a fact a woman was thrown off the bridge during a domestic disturbance, the spouse threw her off , she landed on the cat walk and he went down and got her and threw her off into the water, I have never seen a ghost on the bridge though

  2. I grew up 5 minutes from this bridge and yes people has died on the bridge, but the same thing has happened on every single bridge in this town….and i promise you there are no ghosts.
