Dismal Swamp Canal from the Deep Creek bridge - Deep Creek

Dismal Swamp Canal from the Deep Creek bridge


This is the bridge over the Dismal Swamp Canal in Deep Creek. Just like the one at South Mills, the bridge is operated by the lock tender 8 times a day. He opens it for the north bound yachts before the 0830 lock opening, and then he closes it and gets into his vehicle and drives down to the lock, operates the lock, and comes back to open the bridge for the south bound yachts about 0900. He (or she - some lock tenders are women) does this for the 0830, 1100, 1330 and 1530 openings.
