Lake Monroe Bridge
A portion of the original two-lane Lake Monroe Bridge remains in place at Lake Monroe Wayside Park adjacent to the U.S. 17-92 Benedict Bridge. A plaque in place at the bridge indicates that the Lake Monroe Bridge was the first electrically operated swing bridge in the state when it was built between 1932-33. It replaced a wooden toll bridge and traveled 627 feet across the St. Johns River. When the 1994 bridge above was constructed, the Lake Monroe Bridge was removed from the navigation channel but left in place as a fishing pier on the south side. Photos taken 02/29/08.
