The bridge was damaged by Hurricane Irma in 2017. There's no estimate yet for when it might reopen.

Bahia Honda State Park

Half of the park is closed due to Hurricane Irma, but the part that is open is very enjoyable. The beach near Flagler Bridge has been cleaned up, the roads are in good repair. The small nature center has a rotating slide show on the hurricane damage, then and now. Very informative!
