While on our way to check out the abandoned section of Old State Route 4A, which is a little-known part of the Key Deer Refuge, we stopped at the bridge over Sugarloaf Creek to check for benchmarks. We found F TIDAL at the eastern end of the bridge, set in the southern curb. The disk is in good condition and is stable, but the stamping is very difficult to read.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS.
