Yeah, they talked about the bridge on what I think was Crumbling America on the History Channel and explained this. Ever since I saw it, the bridge seems more scary.

I remember driving across (crept, might be a better word) this ancient bridge in my old home in Columbia County, NY back in 1979 when it was still open:

One lane, very low over the Claverack Creek where there are large old swampy willows, dark dense and heavily forested.  Damn scary!  Never crossed it again.

The bridge at Matanuska Glacier:



But realistically, I was more concerned that the road would slide off the side of the hill on the other side.

Any bridge that requires me to look down more than a 1,000 yds at whats below.

No really scary, but the U.S. 80 bridge between Vicksburg and the Louisiana border is very narrow.

I believe that bridge is closed.  At least, it was in 2008 when I was last there.  I don't know if they permanently want people taking the I-20 bridge, or if at the time it was just closed for maintenance.
