I am not sure if you can even make the bridge out on photo #9. I hope some of you can. This was a great view, however my photo just does not do it justice.

I found a picture of this bridge when it was under construction:

Visited this bridge at 11:45 10 Feb 2007. Fairly good photos can be taken for either bank at east or west side on the bank. Also from the Narrows Marina & the Narrows Rec. Area. This is a long bridge, painted a muted green and has a pipeline slung to the west side.

Webmaster's note: The photos that were here have been incorporated into the main site.

NARROWS BRIDGE. And I'm from the Higden side.

Here's another angle taken from the western (Higden) side.

I grew up in the Greers Ferry area from 2nd grade on. The bridge was always referred to as the Narrows bridge. I have never heard it called the Higden bridge.
