    Are you referring to the bridge that you cross over coming into Everglades City then  you will be fine. It has atleast 12' of clearance on high tide.

    In all my years running down to EC or Chokoloskee I never knew the name of that street... learn something every day...

    Yep,named after David Copeland who worked on the Tamiami Trail and then had a family farm up there in the 30's.
    Anybody remember the Copeland General store and post office, had many good hot greasy bacon and egg sandwiches from there on the way to the o dark 30 launch at the Barron River Resort.

    Yep. Been there quite a few times myself back in the 70s.
