Amite River US 190 Bridge (EB)

Map 

Description 

The fourth bridge across the Amite River at Denham Springs was built in 1961 as a parallel eastbound span to the 1932 bridge, which was then converted to carry only westbound traffic.

Both bridges were replaced as part of a project that began in 2007, culminating in the removal of the 1961 span once the new eastbound span was completed in early 2011.
