The comment that this bridge was replaced by a new new alignment of Hwy 61 in 1987 is incorrect. US 61 followed basically its current alignment through southern Warren County and Big Black crossing near Deer Park in Claiborne County for several decades as a two-lane highway prior to Mississippi's building out its main US highways to divided four-lane.
I tried to visit this bridge, but was faced with a locked gate about half a mile from the bridge. I approached it from the southern end. The gate is just north of the intersection between Old Hwy 61 and Hanknson Rd. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to talk to any of the neighbors.
I'll be out that way on Monday, so I'll try to check it out if time(and the neighbor) permits it.
The Bing Maps bird's-eye view shows the remaining span finally fallen over on its side. The pic of the "teeter-totter" was funny, though!
Wow, never seen a bridge collapse look like that before.
This bridge has only one span remaining, and it has tipped over its abutment with one end in the water and the other pointing to the sky. Here's a couple links to photos.
There's someone standing on the end of it in this photo
