CAGY Big Sand Creek Bridge
Posted January 21, 2014, by Kelly Tucker (ktucker [at] csh [dot] msstate [dot] edu)

Hwy 219 turns into a dirt road before one reached the railbed. After you cross over the railbed you are in someones private yard and there isn't a road or even a trail to get to the bridge. The railbed is overgrown to a great extent and it would be difficult to reach the bridge from the west side.
