SART Imperial wood bridge hazard

The RR ties used to plank the Imperial wood bridge have shrunk in the heat leaving nail heads exposed. I have lost a tire in the past here. The other wood bridges use through or lag bolts and better quality wood. The rangers will fix it if you see one and report it.

Thanks. I haven't been up that far in years, but still nice to know. I rode over two lower down the SART this morning (HB-Costa Mesa and 17th St Santa Ana) and didn't notice any issues (besides the always-rough surface ). The nice cloudless sky this morning down towards the beach made for a great sunrise ride.
