Very interesting. I drove over this bridge in November, but I had no idea what had happened here. The road to this bridge is a rough ride, but the bridges on the route are awesome!

Partial collapse March 29, 1939, with 15 fatalities. Traffic between Jackson and Vicksburg was re-routed officially via Utica on MS 18 and MS 3 (now MS 27), with the Askew Ferry Road/Freetown Road route also available.
