The North Korean JSA part of DMZ makes a semi-enclave only connected to the rest of the North Korean DMZ by a 40 m wide and 130 long corridor.  The original Pyongyang - Seoul main road went over the Bridge of No Return.  Now it is only technically possible to drive through the JSA over the 72-hour Bridge; as there are put road obstacles at the southern bridge. The 72-hour Bridge got its name since it was built during 72 hours after the Bridge of No Return incident.
