In February, I'm planning on taking a trip down Natchez Trace. I'll try to visit some of these bridges that I'm adding so I can get some photos.

I was about to add a bridge on Hill Rd that looked like a swinging bridge with a missing deck, but then I found this bridge already listed. It wasn't mapped and was very vague, but the road name and description seem to add up. I'll add the coordinates.
