    Yes just checked it out yesterday and it belongs to a land developing company. Thank you. It would have been a great location.

    Some Land Companies can be accommodating if you can park on the road right of way and stay in the stream bed. I would suggest getting access in writing with some type of coordinates. If nothing else it looks like a good practice area.

    In most States, the road right-of-way on a bridge is 50' or more from the center line on each side.
    The right-of-way area is public property and may be available for some light prospecting.
    You would have to check local ordinances for parking access.
    The Homeland Security concerns for bridges would make checking those ordinances a must !
    DO NOT dig or dredge anywhere near the bridge support structures !
