The bridge is on part of the Great Ocean Highway, and crosses over the Zancudo River at Lago Zancudo just south of Fort Zancudo. To the south is the junction with Route 68 and to the north is the Zancudo tunnel. Flying under the bridge will count towards the Achievement/Trophy "Under the Bridge".
As the bridge is near the Fort Zancudo base, Crusaders as well as Barracks and Barracks Semi trucks commonly travel across the bridge and pass under the tunnel. As well as military vehicles, trucks of various models often tow trailers across the bridge, and pickup trucks towing small trailers can often spawn too. A Cuban 800, Mallard or Mammatus sometimes flies parallel to the bridge south towards Chumash between 15:00 pm and 23:00 pm.. In the enhanced version of the game, three Besras training may fly down the river between 18:00 pm and 20:00 pm, before reaching the bridge and dispersing. Stingrays commonly spawn near the bridge, swimming out into the ocean..
Events of Grand Theft Auto Online
As part of the Heists Update, the bridge is used as part of the escape plan during The Fleeca Job. The entire bridge is locked down by Los Santos County Sheriff and NOOSE as the crew flee from the Fleeca Bank in an Armored Kuruma. Eddie Toh flies a Cargobob equipped with a powerful magnet above the bridge, attaching the car just before the tunnel, flying away from local law enforcement.
