CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) Sure, the South Norfolk Jordan Bridge is a bridge — but it’s so much more!

It’s also a place people go to get exercise, host events, and of course use as a backdrop for epic Instagram pictures.  It’s truly taken a life of its own.

Our team took a trip out there to find out how this visual icon came to be.

The bridge is open to pedestrians seven days a week from dawn to dusk.
