Black Bayou Bridge
Posted June 18, 2021, by Mike Kerkau (mjkerkau [at] gmail [dot] com)

Umm.

So, there are two bridges listed for this location: This one and BH 63627, https://bridgehunter.com/ms/tallahatchie/tallahatchie-river/ .

Would that one by any chance have been a predecessor to this one?

Also, with the other bridge having a build year entered as 1917/18 while this one was built in 1937 - it evidently didn't last too long. Something likely happened to that bridge?
