Hey James-

Was wondering how hard it would be to have a function to search and then show on a county map/state map the bridges you searched for. I think that would be useful for those who like to go and see/stand on the historic bridges on Bridgehunter. It could kind of help you 'plan your trip'.

23rd Over the River Run is October 8!!

http://www.vicksburg.org/all-news/3-newsflash/632-23rd-annua...

The SCHF is pleased to announce the 23rd Annual Over the River Run. The Foundation along with many sponsors and volunteers presents this very special community venture and it promises to be one of the biggest yet. This event welcomes hundreds to the City of Vicksburg and will serve as a wonderful family event. It will take place on Saturday, October 8th at 8:00am and begins at the Old Mississippi River Bridge located at I-20 and Washington Street. This delightfully unique run follows a scenic course heading west across the Mississippi River across to Delta, Louisiana and then returns back to the finish line. The event involves a 5-mile run, 5-mile walk and a one-mile fun run for kids. Sign up for the race. Sponsorship opportunities are now available. After expenses, proceeds from the race will benefit the Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation. For more information, please call the SCHF office at 601-631-2997 or email info@southernculture.orgThis e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

The railroad is actually Kansas City Southern, although NS trains also run here as part of track use agreememts.

It was previously Illinois Central, I think.

This bridge is on Kansas City Southern Railway. It was formerly Illinois Central, ICG and Mid-South. It is part of the KCS "Meridian Speedway" route.

I lived in Vicksburg from 1993 to 1996 when I worked at the Waterways Experiment Station. The road was still open then; they also held a 5 mile race every year that started just to the north of the east portal, on a Sunday as I recall, when they could close the old bridge to traffic. (There wasn't much anyway.) You ran straight across the bridge and about a half mile or so into Delta, LA, and then turned around and came back. I still have the T-shirt!
