The Main Street drawbridge in Daytona has to deal with passing boats as well as regular heavy traffic, especially during the biker rallies.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The 50-year-old Main Street drawbridge in Daytona, was finally opened reopened mid-afternoon Nov. 5 after being closed for 1 1/2 weeks due to repairs.
Thankfully, it didn't have to be closed earlier in October when the four-day fall motortycle rally, Biketoberfest, was in full swing.
In the interim, motorists and pedestrians alike were forced to use either the Seabreeze Avenue Bride to the north or the International Speedway Boulevard Bridge to the south in the interim.
Officials were forced to close the bridge to remove a mototr so it could be repaired. The drawbridge is well known as the accessway to Bike Week and Biketoberfest on Main Street from the mainland, coming off of Beach Street, which is a misnomer of a name since the beach is on the east side of the draw bridge.
