Conasauga River Bridge
Posted September 11, 2008, by Ed Douthitt (rebellovers30721 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

The bridge is still there, or it was as of Fall 2007. The road is closed, you have to park and walk down to it. Mitchell Bridge Rd. was rerouted north of this location when they built the new bridge several years back. I'll try to take some pics when I get a chance.
