Another quirky idea I had was to provide or get people to volunteer operating as ferry in place of crossing a bridge. I came up with the idea at Irondequoit inlet near Albany. The bridge is permanently swung open in the summer forcing you to go all the way around the bay. I instead contacted the marina for a water taxi. They had none but loved the idea of us crossing there and said they would help. They sent a local boat owner to take us across. It added a very cool twist to the trip.

There is is easy and straight forward. Not sure if it would be as easy at the various crossings to the route.
