The Knox Memorial Bridge crosses the Intracoastal Waterway north of Ormond Beach, Florida. Highbridge Road (CR 2002) passes over the bridge.


Highbridge Road was built at the latest around 1910 as part of the John Anderson Highway, which became part of the Dixie Highway around 1915. The section north of Highbridge Road is still known as John Anderson Highway; the section to the south is now John Anderson Drive.

The Intracoastal Waterway in the area was built in 1890.[1] The current bridge was built in 1955, and according to USGS topographic maps, the road was a bit to the south before then. There may have been a ferry at the location before 1955, or possibly a lower bridge.
