Located Mile Markers 23-24 (near I-85), this old Seaboard Railroad Bridge, which the last train went over in the Spring of 1987, is full of history. Served Richmond to Raleigh…..incredible views, especially after the Steel Bridge (US 1). Awesome boat trip with Friends/Family!!
Maybe one day the high speed route from DC to Charlotte will come across the Lake, which has been discussed for years…..
