Rust Corrosion Test Facility

While the Rust Corrosion Test Facility in Narragansett, RI is still there, the Coast Guard station right next to it has extended their fence to reach the testing area's fence, blocking off access to the southeastern side. The other side drops off into the ocean, and is extremely thick with reeds. There is no way to view the easels full of rusting stuff anymore except from a very distant view from the back. Sadly, the drive may not be worth it.
