Found another submerged bridge. It's Wyse Ferry Bridge under Lake Murray in South Carolina.
Here's a video of the Lay Lake submerged bridge in Alabama mentioned below.
There is a bridge under Lay lake in Alabama.
Check out the Hummingbird side scan forums for more submerged bridges & stuff.
There is reportedly a covered bridge and mill still intact at the bottom of Herrington Lake in Garrard County, KY. The 175ft long King's Mill Bridge was apparently left standing in 1925 when the Dix River was dammed to form the lake. I wish someone would use sonar to confirm this!
Here is a website with underwater pictures of the old bridge:
As you can see, the southern truss is gone and the remaining through truss span is warped and many of the structural members are gone. The northern approach pony span is still there, however. Very creepy but cool. I wonder if the other truss is still somewhere underneath the lake?
A photo of both the old and the new bridges just prior to the dam (and, subsequently, the lake) being built can be seen at the following link:

I heard there is a picture of this bridge in a business near Kimberling. Do you have any info. about a picture?
