in jasper alabama and does still exist to this day.
Most of the movie was filmed in Georgia. The bridge that was used in the movie was just west of downtown Jonesboro, GA. Here is a link to a page that shows the remnants that remain.
i know this isn't it.... but does anybody know where the old bridge that was used in smokey and the bandit was at... i know it doesnt exist anymore but i just want to know where it was located
Just a comment. My buddy John Cross and I were the first to re-discover this bridge. The bridge access is on private property. Please respect that and ask permission if you wish to photograph it.
My son and I first visited and photographed this bridge in May 2006. This bridge was built in July 1896 by Crawford County at the cost of $8,870.00. I will have a complete detailed history of this bridge and two other Mulberry River bridges within the next couple of months. This bridge is full of history. Would like to hear from others with old photos or stories on this VERY historic bridge. Surprise!!!!!!Surprise!!! This bridge was built by the WROUGHT IRON BRIDGE COMPANY of Canton, Ohio. Until this time, there was thought to be only one WIBC bridge remaining in the state of Arkansas; that being the FRYER Bridge (aka- SOLGOHACHIA Bridge), built in 1890 in Conway County. A lot more to follow.
More accurately we found one half of it, and a hangar (Hip Vertical) from what appears to be a lost bridge (now low water bridge) to the immediate ENE.
We found it.
