Love old bridges!! I would like to locate this bridge. I don't live far from it. I've never heard of it until now.

Ironwood bluff bridge in Itawamba County would be one to look into as well. I've been across it many times.

Someone needs to look at the old bridge on the Bankhead highway in Itawamba county in the Dorsey comunity. Also the bridge that replaced it when US 78 ( now 178 ) was built.

It's 2 hours southwest of me. I'm not planning any special trips to it, but I'm sure I'll get to it eventually. I'm pretty curious about it, too.

Your right Robert, It does almost appear as if it could be a Lenticular truss....what a find that would be. More than likely it's just the distortion from the satellite imagery.

Need someone from the Mississippi branch of the Bridgehunter Nation to check it out!

This bridge appears to have vertical endposts based on Bing Imagery. It almost looks like a possible Lenticular truss, though that would be unlikely. Probably a Parker, but very much worth of investigating either way.
