The wife is equally tainted. Any time either of us see a bridge on TV, we holler "Iron Bridge". I Love It!!!

I think I just viewed this bridge in a 2016 horror flick called "The Devil's Dolls". It was filmed in Mississippi.

The westbound bridge is currently closed...appears to be undergoing maintenance!

Yes, These are great photos. Nothing like seeing large thru trusses in maintained condition, instead of a cable-stay concrete thing going up. Cantilevered trusses are rapidly becoming relics of the past.
