Pretty clearly relocated from somewhere else. It appears that the trusses were actually rather unaltered when the photos were taken

Posted January 27, 2021, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

"Lost" refers to the fact that the bridge has been demolished and no longer exists. The "cantilever through truss" refers to the bridge type. Hope that helps!

Posted January 27, 2021, by K.A. Nordstrom (Karl [at] KarlNordstrom [dot] com)

Please forgive the Newbie question.

What does this bridge's description mean, which says, "Lost cantilever through truss bridge over Savannah River on US 17 in Savannah"?

I am referring to the "Lost cantilever" or does my question make more sense referring to "Lost cantilever through truss bridge"?

Thanks.

I belong to a Facebook group that is based on Fannin County History. Besides many other lost bridges that are not listed yet on this site, there has been some discussion about this particular bridge and whether or not it is the same on that was originally located further upstream on the Toccoa River. Apparently, it is!

According to the Fannin County Times, dated August 1, 1935, the concrete bridge that is just upstream from the Old Toccoa River Bridge was constructed, while "a contract for approximately $12,000 will be let for the removal of the old bridge from the old Morganton highway over the Toccoa River to be used for the bridge now in use between McCaysville and Copperhill. This bridge was in use only a few years and will be a great improvement over the one now in use." (from the article).

Additionally, I have attached a photo from that group that shows the bridge in its original location (albeit not in a way that actually shows it on a map). It is interesting that the bridge was stored in Fannin County from around 1930 to 1936 before being placed at its current location.

There are TWO tunnels. One tunnel has been incorporated into the Silver Comet trail. There is another one which we found by accident driving to the trail. I saw the topography and said “that screams tunnel”. Pulled of the road and climbed along way down and found what’s pictured below. This not the tunnel that’s now apart of the Silver Comet trail

Yes the bridge was left behind. It was not torn down. I remember before the lake was backed up going across the bridge into South Carolina to get fireworks. I also remember going across the new bridge looking down at the old bridge. If you were a diver you could dive it.

The counties or private individuals built the bridges such as Jones Bridge. The ones abandoned were either built by the counties or by a private individual that ran them as toll bridge.

Over time the population grew and the State of Georgia built new bridges to replace these.

In the case of Jones Bridge both counties abandoned maintaining it. Which the old Jones Bridge no longer exists.

Hiked the abandoned rail line as part of great eastern trail last week.severely overgrown from starling mill road to this bridge. About half a mile of rail bed is fenced off by farmer just prior to bridge. Other landowners have blocked trail on this section.

Bridge ok; West end blocked by fallen tree

That is correct - actually, it looks like the replacement was finished ahead of schedule, at the very end of 2016. So, demolition of this would have been at the beginning of 2017.

North Approach via Egg and Butter Road is gone, now a driveway for residence. South Approach Egg and Butter road is intact but is privately owned with no trespassing signs.

The bridge is still openly visible via US19 bridge which has a wide emergency lane on bridge. The old wood trail approach on south side is completely gone. Still searching for more info on this bridge.

Posted June 19, 2020, by David Kuhns (naturesguy [at] NaturesGuy [dot] com)

The new one looks like the old one. It is (1) in Catoosa County, not Walker County, (2) is a one-lane bridge (northbound must yield, Southbound coming out of the park has a severe left turn after crossing the truss bridge, to go over another bridge).

It crosses over the West Chickamauga Creek at the Southeast entrance to #ChickamaugaNationalMilitaryPark, the largest Civil War military park in the U.S. National Park System. The first Alexander('s) Bridge was the site of some of the first fighting in the Battle of Chickamauga, mid-Sept. 1863. Signs around the bridge talk about the skirmish there. The new bridge includes stones from Fort Sheridan (on the south side).

If you follow the rail line Northwest from here and cross Hwy. 341, you will come to a wooden trestle over West Chickamauga Creek. From the Google earth view, it looks like half of the trestle has collapsed leaving the rails "floating" in place. Does anyone have any pics of it?

Posted December 27, 2019, by Sid manning (Sidmanning [at] windstream [dot] net)

In about 1950, the iron bridge had been condemned to a single lane of traffic on hwy 41. One way traffic, northbound for awhile, then southbound for a while. All was controlled by a man in a hut with a switch to a traffic light on the Fulton country end of the bridge. My dad was one of those men. He worked this job after his farming years were over due to crop failures.

I can’t find any photos of the bridge from that time.

Posted December 10, 2019, by Art S. (asuckewer [at] knite [dot] com)

If this bridge was placed here around 1915, then this is its second home. The bridge is pin connected and contains wrought iron tension members.

My first guess is Wrought Iron Bridge Co. mid 1890s.

The section that was taken out was by a dump truck that didn't lower his dump. It was still attached after he went in the water. The section of bridge fell into the river when the crane was trying to retrieved the truck. I was standing on the bridge as a spectator (Ga side), the whole bridge almost collapsed. Like I said I almost had a heart attack running off the bridge.

I'm 72 years old and my G Grandfather Dave Miller owned this mill. He acquired it from his wife's relatives, the Hintons. I do recall seeing a large round rock just North of this bridge that was revealed in the late 1950s when the mill pond was drawn down to remove built up sand from the damn area. I watched this being done with a drag bucket and a mule. Anyway, I was told that the area boys would frequently dive from this bridge and, one one occasion,someone broke their neck by diving onto this rock that was just under the surface. Could have been a Carmichael, but I can't remember. Also, My brother James Clark jumped from this bridge in mid-Winter on a dare from me. He almost froze to death before he could get out.

To me, this looks like steel stringer spans with added bracing to give a truss like component, similar to this:

This was an exceedingly rare surviving example of a bridge using Kahn type reinforcing, a "trussed" reinforcement that was a very unusual type of reinforcing. A historical article is attached about this bridge. Further information about Kahn can be found here. https://historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowser=i...

On further topo map research, it appears that this was likely a rail bridge that was later converted to a road bridge before being abandoned completely; when the forest area was owned by the military, a short distance railroad was plotted across this point.

So, apparently, it was both at different times.

Posted January 19, 2019, by Todd Vierling (tv [at] duh [dot] org)

Of note is that Ponce de Leon Ave / GA 8 / US 78 / US 23 / US 29 (this road carries a lot of routes) is a four lane arterial road, but the outer two lanes have clearance of less than 10 feet under the bridge. The bridge still gets hit regularly by trucks, and the concrete reinforcement has to be patched up periodically.

Posted January 19, 2019, by Todd Vierling (tv [at] duh [dot] org)

This was definitely a road bridge. The road involved isn't named, but shows up at this location on the USGS 250k:1 topo map for Rome, GA in 1955, 1958, and 1961, and even still in the 24k:1 quadrangle for Matt, GA for 1997 (historicalmaps.arcgis.com). This is the same road that connects to North Gate Rd/Sweetwater Rd on the north side of the river.

It's likely that this was originally planned to be part of, or planned to be replaced for, Georgia Highway 318 (now defunct).

GA 318 ran along what is now Dawson Forest Road in the southern area of the forest up until just short of that bridge, visible on the Matt, GA quadrangle. The original road going over this bridge took a little more meandering path than the one currently called Clark Rd. It never officially extended northward onto North Gate Road on the Georgia highway system maps, and that portion of it was decommissioned by 1972. (The number itself was dropped in the mid-1980s.)

Other evidence of association: Part of North Gate Rd in the middle of the forest is paved, with asphalt that looks to be about 1960s in age. Strangely, this segment is not connected to any other paved road. It's likely the Highway 318 project was abandoned at some point, as the current dirt part of North Gate Road meanders a lot more than would be expected for a state highway of the time.

Posted January 18, 2019, by Todd Vierling (tv [at] duh [dot] org)

Background: I tried hard to find out when this closed to vehicular traffic, but cannot nail down the actual year. I drove across this many times in 1998-1999 (the first two years I lived inside the city of Atlanta). I can find evidence that it was closed by 2003 and derelict with weeds growing out of it by mid-2004.

Its status is still unclear as of this writing, as it is sometimes closed even to pedestrian traffic, and then quietly reopened again.

I grew up west of this old bridge from about 1960 through 1970. I remember the older bridge before this one. It was a very creaky old bridge that I could actually hear it creak as the cars went over it. It still gives me the chills just remembering it! Several vehicles had gone over it and turned over into the creek below. When the creek would flood after heavy rainz,it would actually almost disappear.

This tunnel has been incorporated as part of the Silver Comet Trail rail trail. The rail line was abandoned in 1980 by CSX, purchased by GA DOT and reopened as the Silver Comet rail trail in late 1998-2001. The tunnel and approaches were excavated and restored, paved with concrete and lighted.

I visited the tunnel today (7-10-17) and hiked above to the right side where the rock drainage wall is. There is major erosion over the portal (10-20 ft) where all you can see is dirt over the arch of the brick. I'm not any kind of engineer but I do not thing the northern portal is going to be up much longer with the way the water drains.

Relocated safely to a park AND replaced by a decent looking modern pony truss. If an old truss absolutely must go from its original site and another historic bridge can't be used as a replacement, you can't ask for a much better outcome.

Did you also notice that the best option is also shown to be the most expensive, probably to deceive the public into thinking that it's actually true, so they can have an excuse to demolish the old bridge??

The first option would be great. I noticed that two of the options involve demolishing this bridge. That would be an unfortunate outcome.
