RE: Airports With Over Road Taxie Or Runways

SLC has a taxiway bridge that passes over a restricted maintenance road between the gates and RWY 34L/16R. Pre 9/11, it was a great "spotting" road that you could drive on all around the west side of the airport, but its now a "security risk" and is closed to the public. Pity.
