The Naheola Bridge was, until 2000, one of only two bridges in the world where automobile traffic and railroad traffic shared the same running surface. In 2001 a new bridge was constructed for automobile traffic, as the old bridge was one narrow lane in width and large vehicles had to go a long way around to get to the paper products plant on the other side.
