  1. This bridge is relatively new (and was rebuilt around 2010), so the spirits mentioned are, more than likely, connected to nearby John’s Pass (which is also haunted) and not to the bridge so much. There is also the ghost of a little girl that is said to haunt this bridge. She fell off the old bridge and broke her neck, but according to people I have spoke to, they say she is also haunting this newer bridge too
