The Stampton Bridge was very long and wide. After the Blast, it became the HQ of Moya Jones and the FBI, as well as a major part of the Empire City Quarantine. It was sealed with several reinforced doors and the bridgeway was barricaded with cargo tankers.
The bridge was then protected on one side by riot police who stopped the people of Empire City from crossing the bridge, and soldiers and machine guns were nested on the other end. Underneath the bridge was a series of pipes and structures that the Reapers were planning to sabotage.
The escapeEditMain article: The Escape
At the start InFamous, Cole MacGrath and Zeke Dunbar went over to Stampton Bridge in an attempt to escape the city. They broke through most of the bridge with angry citizens, but when they reached the other end, they were met by a hail of machine gun fire. The citizens were massacred, but Zeke and Cole managed to escape unscathed.
It is here where Cole met FBI Agent Moya Jones, and the two decided to cut a deal, in which Cole was to find John White and the Ray Sphere, then in exchange, Moya would clear his name and let him leave the quarantine. Cole left the bridge using the pipes under the structure and witnessed the Reapers as they tried to sabotage them. He ultimately stopped them, then met back up with Zeke.
After the events that occurred on the bridge, it became permanently sealed off, preventing any more access to it. Not even the first gate could be opened.
- Both the Voice of Survival and the USTV comment about the incident that happens there. The USTV state it was the act of terrorists trying to spread the plague outside the city, where the Voice of Survival states the truth that they were just innocent civilians trying to get out of the quarantine.
- There are a series of glitches that allow the player to escape to a small portion of the mainland on the other side.
- If you try to get out of the quarantine through a glitch (by jumping in the buildings, for example), you will fall in the water.
- If you glitch through the quarantine doors during the mission "The Escape," and make it over, the doors will automatically open without you having to charge the electricity boxes.
