Tippah River Bridge

I was mistaken on my earlier post. The bridge that is out of service is over the Chewalla Creek & the railroad (about a mile from the Tippah River Bridge). It has been removed & is being replaced. Both bridges were built in 1937. I've attached a picture of the Chewalla Cr/RR bridge construction & the intact Tippah River Bridge.

As of August 2013 the bridge is still closed, but has appeared to be under repair for the past few months.
