Revisited a wooden automotive bridge in Pasco County, Florida in a recent article I wrote on Surewhynotnow:

The only other public wooden automotive bridges I'm aware of in Florida are on Scotts Ferry Road near the little hamlet of Youngstown. It starts out as paved Calhoun County Road 392 (former S-392) but most of it is a red dirt road which crosses through Calhoun and Bay counties. They look modern, perhaps to deal with logging truck traffic - the only traffic that I saw - but they're also one-lane spans.

The Lanier Bridge was the only wooden structure I found that was still in use for the general public.  I did find a wooden bridge ruin on Sugarloaf Key on former FL 4a/Old US 1 and one at the end of Niles Road on Summerland Key.
