Ruins of the Cross Florida Barge Canal

These ruins are in Belleview, Florida hidden just yards from the highway. I stated in the video these were constructed in the 1970’s , but that is not correct. They were built in 1935 in anticipation of the canal. Work was begun digging the canal in the 1970’s, but were stopped for environmental reasons, namely the salt water intrusion would have destroyed the Florida aquifer.
