If you choose "replaced" instead of "bypassed" it defaults the bridge as lost.

You can post them in the comments, or you can create an editor account and add them to the rest of the photos.I look forward to seeing them!!

Athens, GA Railroad Bridges
Posted April 13, 2016

I just added 3 railroad bridges to Clarke County, GA. I came across them while visiting Athens. I know nothing about them. I call upon the "Rail Fans" to fill in the blanks please. There are probably more of them in the area worth adding, too. Thank you.

That's how I roll, Tony. I'm a bridge and beer enthusiast.I prefer my beer Modern/Not Historic though. ;)

They stand by their slogan, "delightfully tacky yet unrefined."

Posted March 29, 2016

No, Art. This one is just for Nathan. Perfect timing, too. It's almost April 1st again. ;)

"The Nathan Holth Memorial Hooters Parking Lot Covered Bridge"

Posted March 16, 2016

Here's a wooden pony truss that has been covered in sheet metal. http://bridgehunter.com/tn/lawrence/50017610001/

Posted March 14, 2016

Thanks, Nathan. This one had me confused.

Posted February 24, 2016

It is. I parked where it was blocked and walked.

Posted May 20, 2015

I'm pretty sure it's a typo. I can't find any reference to that definition of contentious.

Posted February 6, 2015

I don't believe that's the 1912 bridge though. The details say it was a swing bridge. I'm assuming it was a through truss.

Posted January 28, 2015

Julie,

I can make myself available. Let me know the time, and I can work it into my schedule. Sorry I couldn't make it to the meeting Monday.

Posted January 26, 2015

James,

This link explains why they decided to replace it.

Only the 2 k-truss spans remain.
