FB probably exists and will require a determined effort (not in the wind & rain) to cut back dense hedge that abuts the bridge buttress. There appears to be no modifications to the bridge but the road is narrow, the bridge is a hump-back and it is relatively busy with traffic to the nearby mobile homes.
