Love the bridge, here is an interesting article

In 1995 Maryland officials tried to close the bridge citing safety issues and they actually placed concrete barriers on the approach road cutting off public access to the bridge. Unknown persons kept removing the barriers to get access to the bridge. After some months of this game officialdom gave up.
