Amite River US 190 Bridge (WB)
BH Photo #109097
The third bridge across the Amite River at Denham Springs was built in 1932 a few hundred yard downstream from its predecessors, requiring a slight relocation of US 190.
The 1932 bridge was converted to carry only westbound traffic after a parallel span for eastbound traffic was built in 1961. Both bridges were replaced as part of a project that began in 2007. The 1932 (westbound) span was imploded on October 22, 2009 after completion of the current westbound span.
