CG - I-20 Overpass

Map 

Description 

Fairly modern (1960s era) Central of Georgia deck plate girder bridge with concrete piers. Abandoned, but in great shape with an unpaved informal road apparently going across it. One of two railroad overpasses within 300 feet of each other on I-20 in Leeds, the other being an active NS bridge.
