Old Route 66 Bridge
Posted July 15, 2010, by Calvin Sneed (us43137415 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

These old Route 66 bridges bring back a lot of memories of life before I-40.

I remember going from Tennessee to California on 66, and frequently having to pull over to let 18-wheelers have the bridges before us.
