Description 

This bridge is considerably lower in elevation than the new US 129 bridge. It is normally completely hidden from view by Chilhowee Lake and is only viewable when the lake is drawn down for dam maintenance. Viewable in the fall of 2008 and again in the fall of 2015. It is largely silted up now and only some of the deck is viewable
