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."

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.

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.

James,

This link explains why they decided to replace it.
